Billy Joel. White Wedding...1980's...Sinead O' Connor. NOTHING COMPARES TO YOU!....These were the memories swimming through Debbie's head as she approached Odd Twin, a vintage store on 5th and Degraw  With her hair matted against her cheek, she remembered that line from The Outsiders: "They're thinking about putting me and Soda in a boys' home. No way! They ain't putting me in no boys' home" Why was she thinking of that line? She didn't know...what she DID know was that she needed A Mickey Mouse T-shirt that was identical to Emilio Estevez's. As she opened the door to Odd Twin, and the bells jingled their warm welcome she rushed towards the t-shirt rack, combed her hair into a rockabilly twist and saddled up to the counter with a Mickey tee in every color. "Hey there Pony Boy..." she snapped "how bout you charge me for my goods...or else." God she was weird. "Hey, why do you want all those tees?" I asked. "I'm gonna do it for Johnny man, " she cried, "I'm gonna do it for Johnny!!!!"
Thanks for shopping at Odd Twin Miss. You....are so strange but awesome.
