Flashback to the 80s

Posted Friday, March 23, 2012, at 9:22 PM

Reading a book part of which was set back in the 1980s made me think of all the bad clothing and hair that went with it.

Stirrup pants, big-shouldered jackets, big hair ... I never had big hair. I had frizzy hair that stayed that way whether it was short or long. I often wondered about the people who had mohawks or locks that were short on the sides and top and long in the back -- with color. Was it hard for them to get jobs?

I worked with someone once who shaved off part of her hair and another who dyed part of it maroon. But they could pull it off. They were artistic types.

The one thing I did like from the 80s was the music. It was stuff you could jump up and down to. You didn't have to dance exactly.
