     Oh yes, I loved this song as a kid. No clue why. I think I just thought Puff was frickin' cute. It always made me really sad when Jackie Paper abandoned Puff. When my sister said it was about drugs years ago, I actually cried! I was a special child, evidently.  ...

    I'm Still a Kid At Heart...

    Between 2002 and 2004 I was a nanny for a couple of young kids... Young enough that this kind of music was fascinating to them. I hadn't heard "Puff" in quite a while, and I was at a point in my life where I felt my 'childhood' was being stolen from me, and yet I was...
