So, look. When you’re a kid, you do a lot of crazy things. I was born in 1985, so my childhood role plays involved a lot of Rainbow Brite (it says a lot about my friendship group at the time that we all wanted to be her rainbow horsey), Ghostbusters (running up and down my driveway with my friend Bruce shouting, “GHOSTBUSTERS!”), and occasionally Captain Planet when we were feeling community-minded (I always had to be Linka because I was blonde and no one ever wanted to be Heart Boy, whatever his name was).
