I was near your age, and I have to disagree ever so slightly. In the mid-90s, denim reigned. Denim on denim everywhere, ala Jerry Seinfeld. I also remember girls buying their boyfriends big gold necklaces.

Heaven forbid to think that a nice old man would be willing to help a woman with her career in exchange for, well, nothing at all.

That meant we had to pay for the rest of the vaccines out of our pockets. They were super expensive, even with the discount provided by our… » 7/03/14 12:43pm 7/03/14 12:43pm
