  • Oooh I wish I had the picture, but back in the era of hair metal, I had an acid washed jean jacket with Guns N' Roses pins and patches, a big Anthrax patch on the back, poofy hair, acid washed jeans with zippers on the sides and a little bow at the top of each zipper, rolled up, and I am wearing white Reebok high tops and two Swatch watches. I cringe knowing that picture is in existence. I sure was cool.

  • Oh, my goodness! Thanks for the laugh :-)
    When I was around 10, I didn't go anywhere without my New Kids On The Block fanny pack. I mean, I wore it everywhere, school, store, playing, even around the house in my jammies (NKOTB of course!).
