1987

Funny story.  
So whenever I put my hair up in a ponytail...it's almost always angled to the side.  To me, it's just a ponytail.  To outsiders, it looks like I'm trying to play dress up in the 80's.

I didn't really think about how abnormal it was, until I was at work the other night.  I was minding my own business in the kitchen, when this guy walks in to pick up a to-go item.  He was looking at me with the "I know you..." face, so I said "hi".  I looked away...but he proceeded to look at me with that face.  
Next thing I know, he's pointing at me and opening his mouth to speak.  
I assume he's going to say something like, "Don't I know you from somewhere?"  
But no. 
 He points at me and basically yells, "1987!! Side ponytail!!" 
 I was kind of in shock and couldn't really think of anything to say except, "Hell yeah." 
 I ended up being the employee that said "bye, thanks!" to him, and he just mumbled something else about the 80's.  And then when driving away, made it a point to turn around and give me a thumbs up.  

Now that I look back on pictures...I'm frequently rocking the side-pony.
at the ASU undie run...
and when bungy jumping...

haha that is the most awkward thing I have ever heard! But don't worry everytime I put my hair in a ponytail, its a low side ponytail. 80's twinsies!
