when I was cool



Here I am in all my 17 years of glory. Way back then I used to think I was pretty cool but now I'm thinking I was pretty 80's. Darn my hair was big...but back then everyone's was. This picture was taken at my senior prom or actually at the after party. That bowtie around my neck was my boyfriends...the very last man I ever let treat me badly.

My high school reunion is coming up in September so my wonderful friend sent me this picture as a reminder. Now I'm just trying to figure out what she's trying to remind me of. You know it's a wonderful thing to be able to laugh at yourself...quietly.

    ahhh What a great shot!
    And what memories....
    My prom was in 1984 and I know I had a similar hair AND dress style... so, so funny to look back, huh?

    You have more guts than I posting the 80's darling!

    Oh, btw, how are you feeling??

    He couldn't have been that bad if he wore a pink bow tie. Of course that was a pretty "rad" thing to do back then as well.

    I never understood how the progression from knowing everything to knowing nothing occurred? When I was 17 I knew it all and was cool. Now I'm just a 37 year old dork who doesn't know anything. When did that happen?!?

    That is a great picture... And well, your expression is so "don't mess with me"...hehe

    It did take guts to post this and I'm glad you're such a strong woman NWC, I never fail to admire your strength on so many levels.

    another thing we have in common.. the look... the hair.. the bf that treats us poorly and the pink bow tie. Glad to see you came through it all and isn't that the truth - we knew it all way back when!
