Throwing back Thursdays

The “Throwback Thursday” phenomenon is something I’ve been doing for a long time. Except I called it “So There I Was” which is an equally awesome name.

Once I posted this picture:

It was an epic hair day that I thought needed to be immortalized on the World Wide Interweb. Read all about it by clicking HERE.

I never expected in a million years to receive no less that 40 emails from friends, childhood classmates and a few acquaintances FOUR YEARS LATER who were concerned that the above picture had been plastered all over Facebook with the teaser “27 Hilarious Kid Haircuts That Will Make You Cringe!”

Excuse me?

Listen Random Site That I Never Knew Existed And I’m A Little Skeeved Out That You Have My Picture…that curly ball on the side of my head is FLAWLESS. Cringe-worthy? Heavens NO! Celebration-worthy is more like it. Anyone who lived in the 80s knows the delicate balance that must be managed when working with that many sponge rollers and that much Aqua Net. Not to mention the fact that it was PICTURE DAY and I still achieved greatness. Can you imagine the pressure I was under, considering the fact that a perfect outfit had been chosen and nary a zit had popped up over night? The hair made the picture!

Here’s the link: CLICK HERE. What do y’all think? I’m no expert, but the young man in slot number five must have driven his Mama to take up yoga and Lexapro. Bless his heart, that picture is probably in his rehearsal dinner PowerPoint this very moment, but my curl ball can never be compared to worm bangs. Am I right?

Lincee, a friend of mine posted a link last week to that random site I also never knew existed, and I will have you know that as I scrolled through the photos, I stopped at yours (not knowing it was you) and said, “This girl’s hair is pretty much identical to mine, circa 1989(ish).” Same curls (mine was permed), same side ponytail, and same bangs! You were in good company, my friend. 🙂

Omigosh I HAD THOSE EXACT BANGS! And (consequently?) I think your picture looks entirely out of place in that haircut hall of horror…

Someone named Stacee is standing up for you:
“What’s wrong with #3? That hairstyle used to be the sh*t!”

I saw that before I knew it was you and I actually did think that the hair was REALLY good! Way more praiseworthy than my attempt at those bangs. The only thing I thought was that you were wearing Amity colors (from Divergent), which is actually a good faction!

OMG! Your face was so familiar in that article, I was sure it was one of my friends! I couldn’t place it, but pondered for a long time. Now I know how I knew the face. It was you!

My hair, and all of my friends hair looked exactly the same, and we rocked it! 🙂 You were definitely not alone.

I KNEW that was you! I saw that a few days ago and started to forward the article to you. I, like you see nothing wrong with your hair in this picture. We all rocked that side curly ponytail! And those bangs…complete perfection! You were completely out of place in that article! Shame on them.

Love it! Your hair is the kind of hair I’d have killed for back in the day. It’s perfect. Look at that lift, those bangs!

I saw that picture and it looked so familiar…I thought “is that Lincee’s picture from the blog?” I’m glad I’m not alone in recognizing it so many years later.

Pretty sure I have a pic that looked the EXACT same.

Rock that side poof!

Those earrings, though…

But the earrings tied everything together in an almost edgy synopsis.

I had that very same hair style, only I did it in my cheerleader uniform. It’s tres chic. (truly, I’m not proud, but it was the style, yo)

#13 looks like the inspiration for Cameron Diaz’ hair in “There’s Something About Mary”!!!

I had that EXACT hairdo in my 7th grade class picture (taken fall of ’89)! However, I didn’t rock it as well as you did because I was also styling the unfortunate combo of braces and giant pink plastic framed glasses. I’ve begged my mom to remove that photo from the wall of class pictures, but no luck. 🙁
