As H and I were on our way to the gym last night, we heard a familiar sound. A jingle. A "walk"-jingle."walk"-jingle.
Yes, yes. It was the comforting sound of a letterman jacket decked out in medals pursuant to a state track win or a football division title.
Nostalgia was immediately replaced by horror as we viewed the year "1996" on said jacket. Ripped up jeans and an Alice Cooper t-shirt (from the 1988 Summer tour) completed the ensemble. The messy hair he attempted to create resembled more of a mullet than anything.
H attempted to suffocate a giggle as I immediately busted out with the opening riff to Bruce Springsteen's "Glory Days." An air guitar may or may not have been involved.
I also thought it appropriate to do a splits in the air (ala David Lee Roth in the music video "Jump"). I failed to take into account the ice and when I came down from the leap, I almost slipped and slammed against a bush.
My groin muscle is torn and I can barely walk.
Is it just me? Is it just us? I have not worn my letterman jacket since graduation from college. (haha, kidding) Do people still do this? Is it a regional thing?
