Says Deborah on Bookbox (the Scholastic Reading Club blog):
My mom made me pose with the guy who played Conan the Barbarian on our trip to Universal Studios back when I was nine; she said my friends would be “jealous” that I got to be in a picture with such a “hunky monkey.” But all I could think about was how I wish he was wearing a longer loincloth.
Also check out an entry from our hero’s (I’m talking about the girl, not Conan) 7th grade diary:
Things I want to do when I’m in high school:
- Have a boy pick me up from school one day, in a car.
- Have a boy drive me around in his car.
- Go to an all-boys school during the middle of the day.
- Meet a boy for lunch.
- Go out on a school night.
Doesn’t Conan bear a pretty good resemblance to Arnold?
