  1. i definitely had glasses and braces. i think my parents hated me. i used to be jealous of the kids who get to sit in the station wagons with the seats that face backwards cause that’s trippy. but i’m not jealous of the drivers behind the station wagon because it’s really awkward to have kids stare at you while you drive and it’s also really not safe for those kids to be there in the first place. and i’m still jealous of people with the which car door is open lights. that shit is brilliant!

  2. JNCO JEANS!!!! Those were the best – oh my goodness how I loved them. And we’d all brag about who had the widest leg opening…no matter how wide though, we all looked like assholes.
