What Mami Wants for Christmas

This year I told my family that I am cutting back. No one is getting lavish gifts. My mom responded by telling me she only wanted one thing – Ricky Martin’s memoir:
Me by Ricky
Martin
.

I think that’s really cute! Here’s my mom, who’s almost 70 years old, and what she wants for the holidays is the memoir of a hot teeny bop sensation (okay, he’s all grown up now and a humanitarian – but still – just go with me here). Adorable! I think Santa might approve this one. Shake that bon-bon, with your bad self, Mami!

Side note: Yes, I confess, I was a huge Menudo fan back in the early ’80s. In fact, I had a cat, a female, named Ricky, but she was named Ricky after the original Ricky in the group, Ricky Meléndez, not Ricky Martin, who was my crush. I also named her Ricky by mistake because at first, I thought she was a boy. Poor Ricky!
