Time in a bottle

March 26th, 2009

michelle_class_book_grade_4_1I have nothing to blog about and what should appear on my door step yesterday?  A big old box from the early 80′s.  My mom is contemplating moving and is sick of dragging around boxes of stupid stuff that I haven’t looked at in 25 years.  So she sent one to me.  I don’t know what the postage was but it was worth every penny.  That photo over there?  That is me in the 4th grade.  It is a shame you can’t make out the details.  I am wearing an 80′s power bow tie (a la Diane Keaton in Baby Boom).  My mother had socially suicidal odd ideas of how a child should dress.  I wasn’t allowed to wear t-shirts or jeans that weren’t ironed or I looked like I had a mother who didn’t love me.  (Quit rolling your eyes Mom.  It is true.  Those were your exact words.)

I’m still going through the box but I’ll share the treasures as I unearth them.  Just to keep you all coming back, I’ll let you know that 1 item found is my diary (thankfully not locked because it would have been lost to mankind forever with that impenetrable lock).

    Hmmm… I thought that was Griffin with his new hair style. And then I saw the bow tie.

    Oh, and I think I used that same phrase that your mom did recently trying to talk Griffin into getting his hair cut.

    I am about to pee in my pants laughing – beacause I have a pic of me in the 5th grade wearing a pair of khakis and a pink oxford cloth shirt with a multi-colored ribbon tie:) The hair cut is also simular –
    The other thing that makes me laugh is that my sloppy sixteen year old son has heard a simular quote about his “dress code” I have actually told him – your teachers probably think we hate you ;) he insists on wearing clothes that he crammed in the bottom of his closet despite my begging not to -sigh –
    This made my day!!!!!!!
    Now I have to find that pic:)
    They just don’t make diaries like that any more:):)
