A trip down memory lane

My high school reunion is on Friday, so I thought I would reminisce a little this week.  Let's start in my childhood.  I have always liked to pose for the camera -


 

And here is one of my greatest fashion moments -




Did anyone else have a pair of these glasses?  What about one of these shirts -


I'm a Pepper.  You're a Pepper.  Wouldn't you like to be a Pepper, too?


In case you can't tell, I'm the one in the green shorts.  The ironic thing about this photo is that all of us (except for the girl on the far right) ended up going to high school together after going to various schools in between.

Finally, here is a picture of me as a teenager.  Notice how my friend is dressed in a sweatshirt and jeans, and I am not -




I loved fashion even then, and I think I found my identity by dressing differently than everyone else.  This moment was the highlight of our day trip to NYC.  The white limo pulled up and male models stepped out to ask us, "Can I offer you some trouble?"  (They were passing out perfume samples.)

Check back tomorrow for some more reflections on my high school years...
