Like A Hawk

“This is a family photo clearly taken in the 80s. I’m the boy in the stylish green pants in the middle. Here’s what my mom said about the pants: ‘I remember thinking that you shouldn’t have green pants (since it was a bit unusual). But you held your ground. Smart. And daring. They’re super good looking!’

I’m sure all 3 of us kids had just been at the hairdresser. I could never do that hairdo myself, no matter how hard I tried, but since I loved it so much I always requested it when going to the hairdresser. And then proceeded to keep it for as many days as I could. Half-way through the week it would start coming down on the sides and I think it looked less like awesome-80s-do and more like halfway-mohawk-do.”
