Then there was.........
Annie Green Springs, Boone's Farm Strawberry Hill, and Maui Wowie (and getting drunk/stoned behind the drive-in movie screen)
Platform shoes (and the poetic justice of seeing a queen b**** cheerleader fall off hers just before Homecoming)
The Bicentennial......1976 was THE year to graduate from high school!! :hatparty:
Wearing types of clothing which are banned in schools
now: spaghetti straps, bare-midriff tops, bandannas, short shorts, micro-miniskirts, and T-shirts with all kinds of crude images or words on the front (my personal favorite had a cross-eyed duck and the words "Fupped Duck" on it). But you could get suspended for having a water fight on a 100-degree day.
I did NOT prefer Donny OR Marie. I didn't even like David Cassidy. Instead, I had a crush on a Major League baseball player no one outside of San Diego probably ever heard of.
Stickers with your name on them, stuck all over your locker, your purse, your notebooks.......only they didn't have stickers with my first name and I had to buy stickers with my middle name, Jean, which only confused people.
Purple mania........you could buy almost anything in purple, including boots, cars, and houses. Also, lemons were big: there was lemon-scented bubble bath, perfume, room spray, even notebook paper (no, I am not making this up). And one of the most popular stores in town was called the Lemon Frog.
Herbal Essence, Yucca Dew, and Beer on Tap shampoos.
President Ford tripping over steps, golf clubs, and air.
HAVE A NICE DAY.
