I had planned on doing nothing Friday, not even showering, but my mom gave me a gift certificate to the nail salon, so I thought “Why not?” Because Cousin Karen had also gifted MP with one, I took her along. I’m nice like that. MP went with the neon purple, while I got the traditional Valentine’s Day red.
I had also planned on staying home Friday night, but when I picked up MP from school, she BEGGED me to take her to the school dance. The school EIGHTIES dance. Since we had beautiful nails, I thought “Why not?”
MP couldn’t believe it when I told her what we used to wear. She’d never even HEARD of Flashdance. So sad.
Once there, she asked for a cool, shredded t-shirt and since you can never have too much EIGHTIES clothing, I said, “Why not?”
MP wanted me to dress up too and I thought, “Why not?” Then I put on my sequined blazer with shoulder pads and gave myself Farrah Fawcett hair. Oh, that’s WHY not. Turns out dance parties today are just like they were in the EIGHTIES. I looked like an idiot and no one asked me to dance. So sad.
But then I went home and put on my leg warmers and danced like a maniac.
