"OMG, look how young we were!" exclaims my old friend, Maile. In 1990, we were college kids in our late teens. "My grandma got married at 18. When my mom got married after graduating from college, my grandma thought that my mom was an old maid. So my grandma not only wanted to make sure I was fed, she added stuff to my food. She wanted to fatten me up, so that some guy would marry me while I was still a teen."
In 1990, we heard or saw David Foster & Natalie Cole's "Grown Up Christmas List" 3 or 4 times, and that was it. At the same time, our grandparents' generation had this weird habit of adding plant material to drinks.
In 1992, Amy Grant did a cover for "Grown Up Christmas List." Maile and the other coeds came out of the woodwork, and wanted to go to hot tub & sauna spas. "But I don't get throwing flowers into your bath. That's just gross," says Maile.
After hearing Amy Grant's version of "Grown Up Christmas List," Maile made her own Christmas list. At the top was a trip to Japan, to hit their spas. "And I wanted a massage and body treatments," adds Maile. She would fulfill that wish, a couple years later.
After hearing Amy Grant's version of "Grown Up Christmas List," I read Jack English's December 1992 Stereophile review of the XLO Reference Type 1 line-level interconnect. That was at the top of my wish list, LOL! Around Spring Break 1993, I would indeed buy a 1-meter XLO Ref Type 1.
