Welcome to My Essays
©Stuck in the Eighties
††††††††††† Iíve seen people stuck in the fifties, especially guys with their pompadour hairstyles with the ducktails like Elvis. And Iíve seen those stuck in the late sixties to early seventies, like the old guys with the ponytails, but theyíre bald on top, weird.
††††††††††† But Iíve got to tell you, the weirdest are the people stuck in the eighties. Why? People over forty, maybe pushing fifty, with a mullet. Are you nuts? Iím starting my 7th decade and none of them hold a light to the mundaness of the eighties. Not one fad or invention in that decade was worth a second mention. Even the cars were ugly. Iím not sure there is such a thing as an ugly Corvette, but the ones in the eighties got real close. Maybe they werenít ugly, but they sure were dull for a Corvette. What saved them were all the other cars on the road were beyond drab and boring.
††††††††††† But the clothing and hair styles kept everyoneís mind off the hideous cars. Big shoulder pads and a mullet now that screams eighties to me. And with few exceptions the music and the TV shows pretty much sucked in the eighties, too.
††††††††††† Iím not sure why anyone would want to be left behind in any decade, but especially not the eighties. Life is for moving on, so donít be whack, just move on, dude.
