Holy 1986 Batman

As I was leaving my office the other night, a group of four 16 year old girls crossed the sidewalk in front of me.

They caught my eye because they were all decked out for what appeared to be an 80’s costume party.

Complete with low cut sweatshirts, leg warmers, bright colors, and high side ponytails. They are certain to win top prize in the costume contest!

Then I realize something horrifying.

They probably are not on their way to an 80’s costume party. They most likely put a lot of thought into their outfits because that’s the style for 16 year olds right now.

I wiped the tears of dismay from my eyes and drove on.

How did we become old?

I dislike that the music I listened to as a teenager is now on the oldies station.

I agree with Shannon. I want answers! I do how ever miss the leg warmers :( I had some pretty stylen ones years ago..

Well, they do sell leg warmers again so you could fix that problem...
