Hi! Today we baby-sat for Trish & on our way there we saw…JOE*! He is georgus! He was like “oh a bunch of cool cats” and he wuz ridin hiz bike & wearing shorts. I ❤ him. Tomorrow iz tag day in school & I have nothing to wear & mummy wouldn’t take me to Bradlees to get a new shirt, even though I had money. My life sux, how bout yours?
Dear 1996 Julie,
Bradlees? Oh honey. I know you only made about $1.50 per hour baby sitting, but Bradlees? Save your money and buy something nice down at Filenes. I can only guess you wore those tragic purple limited too jeans that you wore to death and a flannel shirt to school, or overall shorts and your favorite over sized Marvin the Martian t-shirt which you would later ruin in a chocolate “incident”. Fashionable, you were not.
Holla back young’un, Julie
