Little House on the Prairie was one of my favorite television shows growing up. And Nellie was one of my favorite mean girls.

What a bitch!

She was condescending, spoiled, and hateful.

When my sister and I were young and acted hateful to each other (especially in the backseat of the car), my Dad used to tell us, “Don’t act ugly.”¬†And I would promptly sneak in the last grimace: scrunching up my nose and sticking out my tongue, ala Nellie. She may have¬†rocked the perfect pin curls and pretty bonnets…but she truly acted ugly.
