True Story! I've been sick for the past 3 days (Note to you men: "It's a WOMAN thing - you wouldn't understand!") and yesterday I dragged myself into my doctor's office. When I walked in, this older woman looked up from her magazine and gave me the once over. Taking in my lipstick-only bare face, FILA-esque tracksuit, Dookie braids, Chuck Taylor All Stars, and Old Skool "Cazelle" glasses (thrown in for good measure), she nodded as if in approval. Then she....smiled. And stopped me instantly in my tracks. Noting her own light grey acid washed jeans (I think we called them "stonewashed" back in the day), grey MEMBERS ONLY-esque jacket, shaggy hair colored by Dark & Lovely #1992, and a singular GOLD TOOTH in the middle of her mouth, I nodded back and went about my business. The ladies at the front desk looked at each as if they were about to witness a real, live Old Skool DANCE OFF http://youtu.be/svsLt5QcuQY . Hilarious.
The thing is: I'm not sure if that actually happened or if it was the delirium from being sick, but nonetheless....thank you, old skool lady, for providing a much needed laugh. Somehow, I think I know that somewhere she is nodding "right back atcha, girlfriend. Right back atcha."
