name that fad

I received the unexpected pleasure of a phone call from my niece Megan this morning. Turns out she had to do a school project and ask people what was a fad when they were kids. It must have been pretty popular because when I said pet rock she asked me to try again because she already had that one. The next most popular on the list was a yo-yo.

It started us thinking about clothing fads. Bell bottom pants...platform shoes...peasant blouses...and then I realized, probably like everyone else in my generation, if I had saved my old clothes I could have made a *fortune* since all that stuff is now considered retro or vintage or something like that.

Wonder what the next big fad is.

Hi Mira,
Thanks for the inspiration! I've been trying to find out how to do this blogging stuff! I should have thought to pick your brain!

As far as fads go... I am praying that spandex stays far far away... though I have seen some leg warmers rounding the mall lately.
