Back In Time
As I was driving to a play date yesterday I passed a gas station and parked next to a gas pump was a 1980's style Trans Am. It was green and kept in perfect condition. And suddenly I was aware that I could hear Pat Benetar playing somewhere in the background and I had to adjust the sideways pony tail on my head by spraying it with a shot of Aqua Net. I was transported back in time. The feeling of nostalgia was so strong that I swear I reached down and my boobs were under my chin. It was like the car was some kind of visual time travel mechanism that sent me back to 1988.
Then I realized that it was just the XM radio playing the hits of the 80's and came back to reality. I looked in the rear view mirror and counted the kids. One, two, three. And then I checked my boobs and sure enough, there they were dangling between my legs. Indeed, I was back in 2008.
