Back in the Day

So, I'm about to speak to a select audience. Specifically, my fellow high schoolers from the late 80's, early 90's. 

I picked up this Back in the Day hip hop CD today at Starbucks. Will Smith, Beastie Boys, De La Soul, Coolio, and many more. Even...wait for it....J.J.Fad. (shout out to Chrissy, the Pepa to my Salt) 

Summer in San Diego reminds me of high school summers. Cruising in my Toyota B210, bumping my mix tapes. Destination...downtown Olympia for frozen yogurt (yeah, this yogurt craze is not so original) or Rhythm City (most awesome high school dance club ever). 

Cruising these days is much the same. Ok, maybe a few small differences. I have three little people in the backseat bobbing their heads to "summertime" and "supersonic". My shorts are about 6 inches longer. The sun through the sun-roof shines on my blond (well, maybe a few grays) hair. And our destination is usually the zoo or playground. Starbucks, on a good day. Ok, I admit it, every day. 

At least the yogurt runs are still the same. Long live the 80's.
