I love reading The Daily Tay’s
posts. I’m always truly lol-ing and relating the things she says. Especially her latest one, I Was the Kind of Kid Who…I thought I’d take matters into my own hand and give you a little deeper dive into the weirdness of my childhood:
I was the kind of kid who thought that I was for sure going to be a famous dancer or that girl who choreographed all of Britney Spears’ music videos. I bossed my friends around and made up and videotaped SO MANY dance videos…if only YouTube was big back then.
I was the kid who had bangs. Actually, I’m now the adult who has bangs, but when I was a kid, they were bad. I remember my routine: I would let my awesome not curly but wavy/straightish hair air dry and then take a big round brush and blow dry my bangs. Not the side swept look that I try to rock today, but truly, a big round puff of bangs that was be secured with cheap hairspray.
I was the kid who never looked good with braces. I always felt like my friends (one in particular) looked sooo cool with her braces, especially with the different colored bands. But my two front teeth have always been bigger than my head (I think I’ve grown into them) so braces was never a great look for me.
I was a bit of a cookie monster growing up and I would take 4-5 Oreo’s/Chips Ahoy and hide them in my pockets so my parents would see me sneak them away. I’m pretty sure I still do that to hide cookies from my husband.
I was the kind of kid who would bite off the end of Twizzlers and then drink Sprite through them like a straw. I don’t know why I thought this was the coolest thing ever, but it was entertaining to me.
Being a kid is weird. And awesome. What kind of kid were you?
