Panic! The 80's Are Coming Back!

The concert last night was awesome. A great "theatrical" show.

We were probably the oldest ones there that weren't there as a chaperone.

As we walked in, I headed straight to the margarita stand that happen to be sponsored by a local band boosters.

I go up to order my margarita while Morrigan heads to a different stand for beer. The lady cards me, I dig out my license and she says, "wow, you one of the older ones here."

Haha, my response?

"Well, you should talk to my friend over there getting a beer."

During the concert, they played Killer Queen by Queen and Eleanor Rigby by The Beatles. Um, yea....Morrigan and I were about the only ones singing along. The kids had no idea what they were listening too.

We were also frightened to discover that the 80's are back and with a vengeance. Seriously, girls, think of the worst 80's outfit you wore or saw back then, and it was at this concert. It was frightening.

Oh, the nice thing was all these guys had a curfew; the concert was out by 9:30. So, we headed straight for the bar. Back to the land of no wristbands, Journey on the jukebox, and straight leg jeans.

It was a good time.

So it was a good concert? I'm laughing. I think I still have 80s clothes in my closet... but none of the hideous stuff. I have this cute little white skirt I wore in 1987 that I want so bad to fit back into... but, well, three kids and its not going to happen. Dammit.

I must agree, the 80s are deffidentally coming back. I see school kids dressing completely like we did in the '80s. Leggings, belts over the long shirt thing, boots with heels, so much more! It's kind of cool, in fact, it's really cool. The 80s were the best time ever! And now its the renissance (can't spell that word) of our ol' time. It's cool.
