Grok Grok. Ooooooold Bag! Grok grok

Boy oh boy, did Ol’ Baggy make a fool outta ‘erself at skool t’day! Grok grok grok! Th’ in-class asinemint wuz sumthin like git with a partner ‘n’ make a 4-color palette fer th’ subjict that th’ teech’r givesya. In seven minits! Ol’ Baggy wuz flabbergast’d about th’ seven minits! Enyway, she ‘n’ Sandy team’d up ‘n’ they were given th’ topic o’ “Th’ Fifties.” As in th’ 1950’s, that is! Sandy ran ol’ Google ‘n’ Ol’ Baggy *tried* t’ run photoshop but Ol’ Baggy ackshully remembers th’ fifties ‘n’ ‘er stoopid ol’ brain kep’ gittin’ in th’ way. So. Here’s what they came up with:


So, each team in th’ class wuz given a diff’rent theme ‘n’ at th’ end, evrybuddy hadta guess who made what palette. Sum o’ th’ other palettes were “road rage” and “migraine” ifya wanna know. Enyway, when Ol’ Baggy ‘n’ Sandy’s palette got put up on th’ screen ‘n’ evrybody figgerd out it wuz th’ 50’s, one comment was, “I could see that.” Ol’ Baggy piped up with, “I *remember* that!” Sheesh! ‘n’ another person said sumthin’ about, “that’s crazy!” Ol’ Baggy gnauffed ‘n’ gnauffed about that. Luckily, she didn’ start blatherin’ away about before there wuz TV ‘n’ when there were outhouses evrywhere.

Anyway, if I were th’ techer, I’d prob’ly flunk Ol’ Baggy fer that ugly color comby-nation. Whaddya think? Akshully, I like how th’ ol’ palette goes with Frog Green!

    My strongest color-related-to-decade combo is that old – I think it was Holiday Inn? or HoJo’s?? – combo of aqua and and some orangish color. And *that* is the ’60’s!!

    meant to say: “…strongest color-related-to-decade-combo MEMORY…”

    Chartreuse green mini-dress w/ hot pink fishnets AND matching hot pink necklace w/ ch. green polka dots on some of the beads.
    Fashion forward (for me) at Slauson Junior High!

    Fifties… hmm, less real “memories” there, but thinking of the slide shows, there’s Harry’s argyle sweater in pink and black and white, and Bubs’ pale blue wool coat w/ the mink collar, and my red and yellow calico dress. The one that I wore so often that Jay never had a chance to get it as a hand-me-down!

    Was the “That’s Crazy” response in regards to the color combo, or the fact that you were old enough to remember the 50’s????
