Never in my life have I claimed to be fashionable. I am almost always years behind in trends, and honestly I just wear what is most comfortable.

7 Things We All Had To Do In The 80s That Kids Today Wouldn't Believe

They don't have the same issues that we did, they don't have the same hobbies as we did, and they certainly would have no idea how to handle themselves back in the 80s. If you were to send
