I used to talk on the phone, like, all the time with my friends.
I wore the most hideous glasses and my aunt permed my hair.
I used to always have a cat in my arms. Meet Smokey. Not much has changed.
I would multi-task. Again with the phone. Nowadays it's a computer.
I drove the family "bug."
Portable music meant getting a "tiny" boombox.
Over-achieving was just an everyday part of life. Sharing valedictorian honors with friends.
As was music. Playing in the orchestra at the Oklahoma Summer Arts Institute.
I attended my best friend's high school graduation (one year behind my own) with my boyfriend at the time. They married almost 23 years later.
And if I wasn't holding a cat, I was holding a horn. Woodwind quintet at the University of Oklahoma.
This trip down memory lane is prompted by a trip back home to attend my 25th high school reunion. Go Midwest City Bombers!!
