the hair

Feb 8, 2013

We all need some comic relief, right? Well, I have some good news for you. One look at the picture below and you will be giggling up a storm.

Here is the background:

This pic was taken when I was either a Junior or Senior in High School back in the last 80’s and early 90’s when hair was big and bangs were high. I have always been blessed with a lot of hair and, of course, fluffed my thick tresses to their utmost potential. I had a little curling iron and would spend hours curling every strand…what was I thinking? And how on earth did I have that much time?

This pic is my mom holding my school pic…so excuse the fingers and crookedness and grainy-ness.

Prepare yourselves for huge fits of laughter.

Here you go.

Are you ready?


Oh, my goodness. Every time I see it I laugh so hard. That is some huge hair. Notice how it is nearly touching the outside of the picture? Did you laugh out loud? Please do. Give yourself the gift of laughter at my expense. It is my gift to you, ha-ha.

    Oh, my gosh! I have that exact same shirt on today! How does that keep happening?

  2. Oh Tracy, I LOVE it! I think I remember you with big hair at some of the family reunions. I must say, I always thought you were so darn pretty. Still are.

      Pretty??? I have never thought of myself as pretty. Sometimes I can pass for cute, but pretty is another story. But thank you for the compliment! The real question is, “Did you reach your giggle quotient for the day?”

      How is homeschooling going?

      Yes, I know. Crazy, isn’t it?

  4. You finally posted it! I’m filled with so much happiness and JOY at this picture. I love it, oh my gosh, I love it. And my inner teen is SO JEALOUS of that height and volume. Mine always fell flat, no matter how much Aqua Net I used.

    It’s so funny to think that hair like that could ever have been “in”. I have some similar pictures of myself, I’m sure.
    Pretty rad.
