Today someone sent me an email about the past, and in it was this picture of gym uniforms. I went to school in an era when we wore uniforms for gym class and this is exactly what they looked like, but in maroon - woo hoo. And...they were 100% cotton, so they did not give or stretch at all. I was 5'10" tall by the time I was in junior high, and I weighed about 119 pounds. These gym uniforms did not come in "tall." So I had to order them in size 14 to get them long enough (they were one-piece uniforms)and of course, that meant that they were far too large for me.
I can't tell you how gaw-jus I looked in my uniform. No, really. I mean it. I CAN'T!
Nostalgia is not always a good thing.
