25 Years Ago…..

I am headed to my 25th college reunion this week.  Please don’t do the math.

I haven’t seen some of my old pals since we walked across the stage to receive our diplomas.  So much has happened in our lives since then yet so much stays the same.  I land on Friday and will head straight for the campus bar “Peggy’s” to meet the KKG gals.

It is going to be a great weekend.

Here is what was going on 25 years ago.

I was sporting a Swatch Watch

Spraying Sebastian Shpritz Forte all over my bi-level hair cut

Cindy Crawford was doing GAP ads

 Michael Jackson was still cool and not creepy.

Fatal Attraction was the top grossing movie of the year.

Anna Wintour put out her first Vogue Cover.

Camp Beverly Hills Clothing was the Peak of Chic

 Clara Peller was screaming “Where’s the Beef” for Wendy’s.

I  would spend many an afternoon at the KKG house watching General Hospital (GH), eating Monster Cookies and nursing a hang over resulting from way  too many wine coolers.

 I wonder if they still have Bartles and James on the menu at Peggy’s?

 I wonder if I’ll be dancing on the bar like I did in 1987.

 I think there may be a good chance of it.  I think I still have it in me.

  1. LOVE IT! Camp Beverly Hills clothes remind me of the Valley Girl dresses we made for high school senior skit – remember “OK fine, for sure, for sure, we’re the Valley Girls and we’ll win, for sure!” Have a blast in Des Moines!!

  2. Oh my daughter, kick up your heals and have fun! Remember when the bar kept the check you wrote and posted it on their mirror because it was from the Corn Belt Bank, and your address was 1205 Valentine Dr, Normal, IL?
    Love, Mom
