7. My mom tried to dress my 10-year-old self in this shit. She thought I'd look "sharp."

To this day, I favor the white tee and blue jeans look (non flare, natch) of my 70s sartorial rebellion.

11. I wear almost exclusively, pullover short-sleeved shirts and jeans.

To hell with fashion, (I never was "fashionable" anyway,) I like what's comfortable.

12. I loved growing up in the 70s.

Adventure was everywhere for us kids. On some days, the adventure began by avoiding what clothing my mom picked out for me to wear to school. Holy crap, how her choices were awful!

I had this one pair of white pants that had vertical, multiple red and blue stripes that ran from the flair to the waistline and made me look like some demented American clown-child. All the button-down shirts were bright colors, and every one had a supersized collar. And, of course, an itchy, sleeveless vest had to be worn over the damn thing. Looking back, I'm surprised I didn't have a few kiddie-sized leisure suits.

15. If you replace the words "very memorable" with "traumatizing," then, yes.

9. Reminds me of the powder blue leisure suit

I wore for church service on Easter Sunday, 1976. Wore a navy dress shirt underneath and my brand new brown Hush Puppies. Damn, I must have cut a handsome figure

13. I was in college then.

I wore Levi's 501s, teeshirts, a hoodie, and shoes I could run in.

Hmmm. I still do.

A good rule of life is:

Wear shoes you can run in and clothes that don't melt or catch fire.
