Before one birthday when I was two or three years old; my parents asked me what I wanted for a birthday present. I said "I want a easy credit." This answer baffled my parents as I was far too young to need credit to buy a house or car. I didn't have a driver's license, only a license to drive a tricycle.

The parents were stumped. Then one day on television they saw what I was talking about. There was a commercial with two young women playing a ukulele singing "Easy credit,easy credit, Wilkins is the place where you can get it". Wilkins is a jewelry store.
