Short shorts themselves. We survived 45 (and I’m not talking about the age…). Push up bras – some of us are still surviving this one. Aerobics classes at the ladies gym in brightly colored leg warmers. Jelly sandals. Ironing our hair with clothing irons. “That” administration. Velcro hair rollers (I actually still use mine!). Setting our hair on orange juice cans. Class photos, precursor to drivers license photos. Drinking from the garden hose.

The Trumpster

Suntans courtesy of baby oil and iodine with no SPF in sight. Junior High, High School, and College. Many of us survived childbirth, terrible twos, and raising teenagers. Gym class in uniforms that resembled prison garb. “Agent Orange.”  Powder Puff football games. Cheerleading skirts. Pageants with swimsuit competitions. Bridesmaid dresses. Rotary dial phones. Land lines. Twenty-six foot telephone cords. Beepers, and pay phones. Polyester pantsuits. 4 years of “The Family”. Paisley floral prints. Granny boots with ruffled dresses.

THE MUSIC IS NOTHING ELSE MATTERS BY METALLICA. I DO NOT OWN ANY OF THE FOOTAGE USED FOR THIS VIDEO! ALL FOOTAGE BELONGS TO ITS RIGHTFUL OWNER(S).” I think that covers my involvement. Thanks, David Shadrick for suggesting these two videos for Calamity News and Politics Jukebox Choice of the Day. Enjoy! DSM
