When I was about 4 years old, my favorite song was Michael Martin Murphey's Wildfire. So much so that when I was walking by the neighbors house (who happened to be my aunt's sister unbeknownst to me) I told one of the biggest fibs of my life. She asked, "hi, what's your name?" and I said with all of my heart, "WILDFIRE!". Which she responded asking, "Oh! Is this Indian?" That's when I knew I was busted. Of course quickly came back with a, "yes" and then ran home crying.

Here's the song that inspired years of ridicule from my older sister Melea. You can call me Wildfire. -Nicole
