If I was a boring 70s kid on Christmas


I like to lament to my parents about how unfair it is that I was born after the 70s.  My mother’s standard response is that I didn’t miss much.  That the 70s were boring.  That all the girls and boys dressed the same.

For shame, mother dear!

So upon looking in the mirror the other day I thought gleefully to myself, This is what a 70s kid would wear on Christmas!  A hint of festivity in the coloring, but stubbornly non-dressy because ‘damn the man’ and all that… or whatever it was that those crazy 70s kids would say.  Or maybe they wouldn’t say anything at all, because they didn’t care??

How am I to know the truth when I romanticize that decade beyond belief?  The grass is always greener, you know.
