Ha! When I was in about 7th or 8th grade, around 1958/1959, I had a birthday slumber party. My friends and I had to dress in beatnik apparel. I wonder how many people even know what THAT was!<quoted text>
Do you know how much I wished I grew up in the 60's-70's when I was in high school in the 90's?! I used to wear my Dad's skin tight powder blue bellbottoms (they covered my shoes completely), with my Mom's tie dye shirt to school. It was awesome. Wish I could still fit into then (my Dad was a small man and my Mom even smaller).
People used to have poetry readings; instead of clapping in applause, they snapped their fingers. Funny.
Wow. My mind is really wandering these days. They say, in nature, when a tree is about to die, it blossoms - sort of one grand goodbye, I guess. I wonder if I'm dying!
