At pathfinders tonight, I was raving on about how excited I was for Retro Day at school tomorrow.

I told them how I was going to dress “so 80s” and described everything I was going to wear. Neon blue leggings, shorts over them, a rugby shirt which has relatively puffy sleeves, legwarmers, my flats, and then I was exceptionally excited about the scrunchie. (Or is it scrunchy?)

I’ve been telling a lot of people about the great scrunchie/scrunchy idea and have gotten a couple of chuckles. I thought it would be the same at pathfinders, and it sort of was.

When the pathfinder leader gave me a face and pulled a scrunchie off her wrist and put it in her hair.

“I’M SORRY, I’M SORRY! I meant that in the nicest possible way! I had no idea!” I said immediately when everyone was laughing. (Everyone including me, admittedly.)

“I actually like scrunchies,” said one of the girls sitting beside me.

“I do too, but they’re out of date, retro.”

So when I got home I finished doing what was mandatory of my homework (which was none except for typing up YAC minutes) and found a scrunchie with no problem. It was on my dresser, out in the open. Way easier to find than I thought and I put it in my hair immediately where it ramains.

I really don’t have anything against scrunchies. I don’t wear them to school nowadays since they sort of, well, ARE ten years (at least) out of date. I used to wear them all the time when I was littler.

So no hard feelings to all you scrunchie-lovers out there.

Did you hear? Vintage is the newest thing. 🙂
