It's Tuesday, baby!!!! And while Chelle's off dealing with some other thangs, I'm coming to bring some fun, chile.
Boo, I'm never around for throwback Thursday, so I'm gonna do Take-It-Back Tuesday with Tyrone. Why? Cuz I can! It's my show on Tuesdays and I do what I wanna. How many of y'all was around in the 80's? Don't be lying child pretending you wasn't...I can look and guess yo' age.
Anyhoo, we had some style, but some of that stuff was just whack, girlfriend! Check this out, boo...
For real? Why did anybody think that stuff was cute! Half the time it was too darned hot to be wearing some leg warmers? And what did they accomplish anyway! My mama started wearing those thangs and honey, you couldn't tell her nothing!
My mama and auntie Charlene wore Lee Press On Nails faithfully! That was before women, at least sistahs, were big on manicures like they are now!
All the girls had one of these at home in their room. Don't get me started on party night! Chile, memories. Whoo!
Which one of y'all had this in your medicine cabinets? Don't lie, boo. I know you had at least one of 'em. I wasn't the only one with bad skin. I ain't gon' lie, I kept me some Noxzema on hand. And Alex might get mad, but seeing as how he's my bestie, I can tell. He kept Sea Breeze around. We might've had skin problems then, but we're gorgeous now, baby!
And what about these sponge rollers? Y'all remember these? Chile! Some of them chicks used to show up at school with them grooves in they hair from the clamps on the rollers. And don't forget the chicks with the frizzy ends from wearing these! Honey, y'all was a hot mess back then!
Me? Baby, my Mama used to make me keep a haircut back then. But now? Child please!
This was good for girls with hair. But honey, some of them girls come up in there lookin' a hot mess with their stingy ponytail. They didn't have nothing to hang out the clip. Some of them same heffas come up in the salon now and got weave down they back swearing up and down it's they hair. Who I look like to you? Boo-Boo the fool? Uh-uh, baby.
Y'all remember them Starter jackets and Guess jeans? Mm-hmm! Chile everybody was rockin' those! 'Specially Matt Kingsley and Greg Richardson! Whoo! Get out my thoughts, boo.
Now while everybody was styling Guess and Starter, I was fresh in my Michael Jackson jacket and parachute pants! Yes, baby! And Ms. Johnson didn't buy her baby, Tyrone nothing cheap! I wasn't wearing no pleather like everybody else. My stuff was real leather! Nothing but the best for the best! Mm-hmm! That's what my Mama used to say.
Well girls it's been fun strolling with y'all down memory lane, but I gots to clock them dollas. I hope y'all had as much fun as I did and let Chelle know.
Anyhoo, in the meantime if you need yo' do did you know where to find me. And don't be coming up in my spot with no weave pretending like it's yo's. If you bald ain't no shame in yo' game, be proud and express yo'self darlin'! Y'all know who I'm talkin' bout, and if you don't, I'll tell you...
Sharmanetra, Daiquisha, Roneka, Marsharmaniquia, Jody, Kesha, and Vermiraquon! And if I didn't call yo' name and you go roun' acting like that weave yo' natural hair, quit that! Be you, girlfriends!
