148 THE ILIHORIDCE HERALD Ihundaf, November 7, 1772 ;l Just Jude By JUDE TURIC CHILDHOOD laitlasiL's SOL-MI In have :i unique way of shou-ing up al just the right time. They manage lo creep iiiln head and succeed in breaking Ihe'monolony of the grown-up world, lions aao. when 1 was firs! introduced lo Ihe joys of watching lelevision, Ihe fate of the Jilllc actors jntrigued me no end. Plopping down in front of the set, wilh eyes trans- fixed. I'd '.viilch as lliey back and forth across my screen, and tried in vain to peer inlo the corners when they walked oul of sight. 1 wondered abouL where they lived and if they were normal size people who could magically shrink to anl-size things and crawl into Ihe set. It was ijrea: and mystical, and loads of fun. Mv dreams blew up with Ihe picture lube when the repair man opened up the back and showed the guts; all very metallic; and all filled wilh little light bulbs. The radio saved my shattered imagination and restored mv faith in wonders of the world. the advent of Ihe big pop fans and Iheir beep-bop songs, 1 envied Ihe disc jockeys' circum- stance. Listening In the screams of You Ain't Nothing But a Hound Dog and King Creole. 1 marvelled al the expense to which the slalions would go m order to bring Ihe best of Ihe rock world lo town I was convinced thai the stars would some day be walking to my house and asking lor a room lor the night because the hotels were full. Ihe greatest of the greals silling in my living room and Ihe girls lining the lawn, we would talk and become fabulous friends and everyone would envy me madly. A grade-four tour of a real radio station broke through that daydream in due time as well. Bad cases of hero worship overtook wanting lo mecL singing slars but wore oul as my heroes all gol married and divorced. Going lo movies with life-size people in them re- placed the disillusionment of not having midgets in the TV7. One tidbit of information gleaned from my friends saves my fantasy ego I never imagined lhal pictures cuuld see and-Lell and necessitated being turned lo Ihe wall if mischiev- jous things were being planned in Iheir presence.
