Katie Holmes, I’m looking in your direction.


Why, God, Why?

Why, God, Why?

Nothing sends me back to middle school more than this look which I pray DOES NOT CATCH ON.  DO YOU HEAR ME, PEOPLE?  DON’T LET THIS SPREAD.

I did this until about the eighth grade when I finally realized how stupid it looked.  I can understand pegging (or as we called it, French cuffing) your jeans if you are going out into the deep woods and you don’t want anything to crawl up your legs.  But see that pic on the left?  That, invariably, would happen throughout the day — at least one leg would come loose and you’d have to do it up again.  It adds up to a waste of valuable boy-watching time.  

Thankfully, it seems from my sister’s magazines (I refuse to buy my own copies of US Weekly or Star) that this was labeled a DON’T.  I’m blaming the thetans.

    Ha! I so forgot about this! For middle school I was forced to go to a private school. We couldn’t wear jeans only yucky preppy pants and I remember french cuffing them. Oh what a pain that was. To top it off I think that was the same time we all wore two pairs of socks in diffrent colors and those Docker boat shoes. I could never figure out how to keep those little curly knobs tight.

    I hope my kids don’t ever find pictures of me at that stage.

    I had those shoes — mine were Eastlands though, and you had to do those weird knots on the end. It was thoroughly uncool to tie them. How weird we were back then. LOL!
