I am fascinated by Dollywood. Or at least the idea of it.
Can I explain this? No.
I am not a fan of Dolly Parton’s music overall. She’s got some great songs, don’t get me wrong. I just don’t typically listen to country music. But as a personality? Oh, hells yeah. Big fan.
I know it’s weird. This fascination with Dolly Parton began in… I want to say 2002 or 2003, when I was watching So Graham Norton on BBC America and she was his guest. It was, quite possibly, the funniest interview I’ve ever seen. And when she presented him with “the tit pillow,” (her words) a pink, bejeweled concoction with a giant nipple in the middle? Oh, honey, priceless.
That was the day I discovered you can say anything, just so long as you say it in a genteel Southern accent.
So yes, I want to go to Dollywood, in Pigeon Forge, TN.
Maybe get a “tit pillow” of my own.
