....and wants its groove back. And guess who has it?
A few weeks ago I was on one of my favorite blogs, Girls of a Certain Age, and saw this baby:
and I was all - Hellllloooo, seventh grade! and I TOTALLY bought one at Target. Granted, it wasn't the big ole fat Lip Smacker like I picked up at JC Penney back in the day (though they had those too). I took off the cap and just smelled and smelled, and damn if I wasn't back at the B&D Roller Rink listening to Billy Squire, eating a Laffy Taffy and drinking a suicide (hollaaaa to my homegirl Whitley, who ALSO drank her a few suicides in her day).
I also had THIS version of a smacker:
what can I say? I was a bit of a Soda-Smacker Connoisseur.
And I also picked up this tee:
Which is reminiscent of one of the BEST displays of 70s high school life in cinema - Dazed and Confused, when Parker Posey was the bitchiest of mean girls - the Queen of Mean:
and when Matthew McConaughey looked like this:
I LOVE this tee. Granted, it is not quite as groovy as the red satin sweatshirt with hood, drawstring and kangaroo pocket I wore back in the day, but it'll do. I GUESS.
And THEN? I'm not gonna lie - I got my groove ON.
I really didn't have any other choice.
That's how you roll when you're the Mayor of Funkytown.
