The Professor and…😞

Dawn Wells passed away today and for some of us our first crush is gone.

Dawn played the part of Mary Ann Summers on Gilligan’s Island for the series entire run. She returned for the movies and I’ve watched her in other stuff, but she’ll always be Mary Ann to many of us.

You see, you have two choices. You’re with Team Mary Ann or Team Ginger.

Ginger is that gal that’s gonna be A LOT of work. She’s going to need a fancy car, big parties, clothes and all the things money can buy.

Mary Ann is happy at home with you. No matter how broke you are. She’s good to go.

I married a Mary Ann. Both figuratively and literally.

I think the Mary Ann/Ginger divide may have actually put a lot of us on the right path in the pursuit of real women in our lives.

Women who are comfortable in their own skin, basic and natural. Fierce in the protection of their families, loves and way of life.

Not wanting for anything and making everything. Building life instead of buying it.

I’m thankful for that.

RIP Dawn Wells.

That’s it. That’s the post.
