I have a few problems with those kids walking down the middle of the road thing too, but I play chicken with them and they usually move rather fast.
I could not stand the asymmetrical haircut the ‘guyz’ used to wear. Like a sugar bowl haircut with the left or right side shorter than the other and I certainly am not pleased with the skinhead or bald look. I always figured that the girls had more sense, because no matter how stupid the boys looked, the chicks always looked good.
Now I’m spotting girls with these pseudo-black-cotton-dayz-square-chunks sticking out of their heads or odd rows of curious, lumpy braids going from forehead to the back. I’ll take spiked, colored hair any day over these two styles. I did spot some young black girls wearing afro-puffs and I thought those were cool, remembering them from the early 70s.
I don’t mind the Goth look, nor the Vampyer look, though being male, of course I think the guys look like dorks. I’ll be real pleased when the ‘in da hood/little rascals’ look goes away.
Now, I have a slight problem when I admire a beautiful woman jogging or walking along and she has on these expensive trainers, runners, walkers, whatever type sneakers that make her feet look like futuristic boats. You expect a guy to dress clunky, but, somehow, you expect women to have better tastes.
At least the kids – hooray!-- have started wearing cool platform sneakers circa 70s and embroidered bells circa the 60s. Well, girls mainly. Da guyz still wear enormous sneakers and dress in ‘da hood’ clothing, mostly.
You know, I’m glad I don’t have any kids today. I’d be fighting with them, especially the boys, over their clothing and haircuts. Well, on second thought, not the haircuts because they would not be allowed to get those kooky ones.
I wonder if they still make butch wax? Do barbers still know how to make a flattop? Do they still make hair tonic?
In addition, no kid of mine would ever be allowed to grow a beard of any sort until he graduates. I’d have to think about sideburns. It seems every serial killer likes to wear them.
