the good times
As you can see all my typing is still underlined....what is up with that? Thanks to all who responded yesterday to first kiss......ahhh the memories!! And what about your first date? Mine of course was with the X. Im talking about dating in a car. I was not allowed to go on a car date till I was 16. I can remember we went to a hayride and a weiner roast! It was great fun to be able to sit close to him in the car. My Mother stood out in the road and watched us leave as if I was taking a trip to Mars. And I always had to be in by midnight. Do any of you remember Chiller Theater?? I remember Bob was allowed to stay late that night b/c the whole family stayed up and watched Chilly Billy. We had a town dance at the community center every Saturday night for the high school kids. We always went to that and then came home and watched Chiller Theater.
And then they came out with matching shirts and he and I had 2 sets of matching shirts...which we both wore on the same day. And of course I had his class ring and I would change the angora that held it on my finger every day to match my outfit.
Every night I would put my hair up in these great big rollers as big as orange juice cans to make it straight. How did I ever sleep in those things??
The pajama parties were always fun! We all wore our babydoll pjs. We'd call boys all night and make a few prank calls while we were at it. Couldnt get away with that now with caller id. We always got pizza, played records and stayed up all night and the next day you slept all day. Usually there was an argument or 2 between a couple girls. Do girls still have pj parties? Ashley had one when she was 16.
Then we used to try smoking, we would hang out the bedroom window smoking away. Once in a while in the summer we would all sleep outside in someones yard...after the parents were asleep our boyfriends would come...usually sometime in that night we would get scared about something and we all would run in the house and end up sleeping inside.
We all wanted to have big boobs....lol. We would do exercises to make them grow and wear padded bras! The guys were all fascinated with them. I dont think we ever wore low cut tops though....we wore a lot of sweaters. We were quite the fashion queens. I remember one of my friends had a pair of "falsies" and her dog chewed them up.
Those were good times....I dont think kids have good times like that anymore. Its not the same world. And what a shame. Those were the good times!
Lets Talk.. Catch at 12:50 AM
