I thought my nephew would have a cow the other day when we pulled out the old home videos (on VHS, no less) of the day that he was born. He was turning 16, and we wanted to have a lovey-dovey moment with him.
Yeah right! That lovey-dovey moment turned into one of hilarity instead!
Here is my sister, having a baby, with big, old poufy hair. And here I am, standing next to her, in a puff-painted, neon colored t-shirt complete with the t-shirt holder on the side (my hair was slightly less poufy, but poufy none the less).
Talk about a fashion statement! We were poster children for that transitional time between the 80’s and the mid-90’s when nobody in the fashion industry looked good, but everybody was flamboyant.
So, we didn’t get our lovey-dovey, homespun memories moment. But we still got a pretty great moment of humor anyway. I know it’s one that I’ll never forget.
(Oh, and I have already hid that video from any other prying eyes who might seek to blackmail me in the future.)
