I always got embarrassed when my mom said "Octapussy"

I was terribly afraid of having to do anything masculine. I was always the skinniest kid in any group. I was very androgenous as a child. My father would cringe and give me a look of red eyed shame when anyone would refer to me as his "daughter". I had a longish mullet which I called "the luke skywalker". I got a round brush caught in the back of it one morning before school. My mom had to detangle the brush while my dad just shook his head in disgust.
