Back in the Day

This week for is slang, and what it was like when we were young.

What were the words you would have used to describe something cool or popular? That was cool man, hip, off the charts.
How about those things that were uncool?

Bummer, unfair, the pits.
What were the hairstyles of the day?

Perms, everyone had them, from footballers to actresses, whether it was just wavy or downright curly. I had a perm when I was about eighteen and remember sitting having the curlers put in my hair. The acidic smell of the potion to keep my hair curling.
Did they have a name everyone used to reference them? A perm, or another style was the Bob Cut.
What were the styles of the time?

Clothing (fame was a favourite show at the time) rara skirts, leg warmers, glitter in the hair, stiletto heels, boot cut jeans. Who ever thought leg warmers should be in fashion I don’t know.
What word would you have used to describe something distasteful?

The only word I can think of is crude or obnoxious.
What about peers you were not fond of or were not part of your tribe?

The only peers I wasn’t fond of were the ones who thought bullying was okay. I didn’t care if they were geeks, or nerds, sporty, or bookish (I was bookish) as long as they left me alone it didn’t matter what they liked.
Any phrases you remember that were used (or overused)?

When I was your age . . . Although now I tend to say it too lol. Funny when your memory plays tricks . . .

I am a fifty something mother of two grown up children, and one beautiful grandchild. I have been married for nearly thirty-four years. My first book was published ten years ago. I wrote my book Sticks and Stones because of my experience of being bullied at school.
