For those of you not old enough to remember the late 80s-early 90s, it was filled with strange things like big hair, mullets, Pac-Man, Extra Terrestrials, the Sony Walkman and that damn Rubix cube that I could only get two sides of the same color.
It was also filled things like a Cabbage Patch dolls, Glow Worms, Pound Puppies and Masters of the Universe.
People like The Fresh Prince, MacGyver, B.A. Baracus, Alf, Crocket and Tubbs were on the television and almost everyone knew what show starts with, “Show me that smile again… ”
Air Jordan’s had just taken flight and things like parachute pants, jelly shoes, leg warmers and Member’s Only jackets were all the fashion rage.
For those of us who DO remember that time, think about how long it has been since you’ve seen some of those things. Sure, you might catch the occasional episode of “Growing Pains” on TV Land but most of those items are buried in the past forever.
So imagine my surprise when I saw something straight out of that era walking through my neighborhood the other day. I was more surprised at what it was than I was with WHO had it.
I’ve written about our dislike for “Camaro Boy” in an earlier post entitled, “Don’t Touch My Wife’s P^ssy!” but even I didn’t expect to see him walking his dog wearing these…
When’s the last time you saw a pair of tight rolled jeans strolling through your neighborhood?
Guess I shouldn’t really be surprised considering Camaro Boy proudly prowls the neighborhood in one of these… when he’s not riding a bicycle or scooter.
