Rose is having a flash back week, asking blogers to share their memories of your teen years.
This was just the right time, because I spent Saturday night doing something I used to do as a teenager - BOWLING. I did miserably, didn't even break 100, but it was fun. And what is it about bowling alley french fries? Is the salt laced with crack?
After my friends and I bowled, we headed to dinner, where we played 80s Trivial Pursuit, without the game board. If you got a question right, you got a sticker. We were all covered in stickers by the end of the night. We got a little more lose with our "hints" after a couple of aussie-ritas rimmed with sugar. Sadly, I did not win. Because I kept landing on politics questions. You'd think every answer would be "Reagan" but that's not the case.
As a teenager, I was an 80s QUEEN! I kept notebooks with all the teen Bop! cutouts of then favorites John Taylor (Duran Duran), C. Thomas Howell, Ralph Macchio (is that even how you spell his name?) Judd Nelson, etc. Every year, our school would have a "spririt" week, and one day was "dress up day". Well, my friend Anne and I took that to mean Halloween dress up, and went to school as Madona, with mesh tops and gloves. Yeah, they meant "dress up NICE" day. Oops.
I also had legwarmers, that I wore maybe one time. I could moonwalk and do the breakdance "the worm". I was the Class of 1990. I was a senior cheerleader.
And I would never ever do it again. Except for maybe the music, but I've got my iPod for that. I could never go back to mix tapes!
