NTS: The Eighties are NOT Back

We took the girls to Skateland for mutual last night. There were several girls there with ponytails to the side of their head, the necks cut out of their shirts and tied up over a colorful tank top. They were wearing short shorts that looked more like gymnastic shorts than anything you would wear in public. Anyway, I turned to the other leader that was there and said, "oh, look at that, ponytails on the side are making a comeback." That made me giggle.

Later in the night we realized that there were several more girls dressed in such a manner. Then there was a kid in a Hawaiian shirt with a fake mustache. And a lady with a jazzy belt around the outside of her shirt. A guy with 2 collared shirts on, both collars sticking up. Oh, and the dude with the giant black wig. The big realization was when it was clear that all these people were together. Apparently it was a youth group of some sort and the theme was 80's dress.

Big sigh. Eighties style is not back. But here I sit, with a pony on the side of my head which will never see the light of day.

Isn't it sad when you're childhood is considered Retro? It wasn't that long ago! It can't be Retro yet!

Aw man...we coulda been twins. I always dress and style to the 80's...when home alone...not that I'm embarrassed or anything, just don't want to cause a new/old trend.

MOKE's- the worst was when I had a classic rock station on the radio and some jerk of a 14 year old boy said, "leave it here, I love the OLDIES!"

You could bring back the 80s all by yourself.

And yes, just take more pictures of the good stuff and voila! all parenting challenges disappear.

(Or so I tell myself.)
