You Haven't Changed A Bit

I over-heard someone at my 25th high school reunion last week say they thought I was one of the folks who hadn't really changed. I'm not sure if that is a compliment. My hair, although longer, is still the same color thanks to my hairdresser. I know I weigh a little bit more. And I know I don't wear quite as many layers as I used to, unless it is a very cold day outside. Speaking of layers, I wonder why I didn't throw on a cardigan or a second oxford for my picture. Surely I could have fit one more article of clothing either underneath or on top of my sweater. What was I thinking?

haha...I think I had the same hair, except blond, but I had to wear one of those half gown things that made you look like you were wearing a sleevless dress. I think I did it in black and blue.

That's what everyone wore in the 80's so don't feel bad! I have my high school reunion (25th as well) coming up next year. I was on the committee for the 20th and I think I will leave the planning up to someone else this time.

OK OC - What is this half gown thing?

CJ said...

Hey Rita - Did you remember top-siders? We all wore those with our layered look. Way too preppy.

Planning one of these things does seem like a lot of work - trying to track down everyone must be tough.

I think you look better now, but you look good then too! Fashions of days gone by always seem silly and embarracing! lol

CJ said...

Thank you Rubye Jean. Women are like a fine wine - better with age!

CCHS is #1 said...

We had to dress in layers in HS because all the guys were horny little pervs!

CJ said...

Hey CCHS is #1 - I think you have a typo. I think you meant to write CHS is #1.

(There are two high schools in Chicopee - Chicopee High and Chicopee Comp. Looks like a Comp graduated has infiltrated my blog!)
