There are so many things that remind us of the 80’s, or being born in the 80’s for that matter. Here are a few of my favorites.
Let’s talk about fashion for a moment. Pegged jeans. Never attractive. I am not even sure I can stomach talking about them more. Do I sound bitter?
Another fashion no- no that is now coming back are the MC Hammer pants. Now people, I respect fashion, and always have, but wearing pants that make you look like you can’t control your bowels is unacceptable in my book.
Next up, scrunchies! I loved them in the 80’s and I sported them in the 90’s and even once in a while for a costume in the 2000’s. My favorites were the one’s that were like free advertising for bands and TV Shows. Can you imagine how rich I would be if New Kids On The Block paid me, or you, to sport their gear?
Lastly, I want to move away from fashion and talk about two of my favorite TV shows: The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and the Flintstones. Do kids nowadays even know what these shows are? I would like to think that people still do ‘The Carlton’ and know who invented it. And did anyone ever take into consideration how rough things must have been on Fred Flintstone’s feet? Poor guy worked hard for his family. Oh, and we can’t forget the fine Fresh Prince himself. How many lessons on life and love did you learn from the Prince? Countless.
