Wistful Wednesday

1992. That fade rocked.

I love it how Throwback Thursday has become a thing lately, based on Facebook impetus and the ability to scan in old photographs so they’re suddenly digitally relevant. Oh yeah, and so that people can “like” them.

I never thought I’d see the day where people would proudly show around horrendous photos of themselves as children and others would sidle up to them and say how CUTE they were. And 600 “likes” later they’re celebrating because they broke some perceived impossible barrier of “likes” from the previous Throwback Thursday when they posted the picture of them on the mechanical dog with the Flock of Seagulls haircut.

So I’m proposing a moratorium on all things Throwback Thursday. I’m taking back the day that used to simply be called… Thursday. I’m returning it to its former glory, without all the glitz and glamour of faded photographs and pithy sayings that accompany them. In its place I’m instituting Wistful Wednesday, a chance to glance through old photographs and make them suddenly digitally relevant, just a day earlier.

If Thursday was the new Friday, then Wednesday is the new Thursday… and in the immortal words of Dr. Dre, “everybody’s celebratin’.” Here are some old school gems I’m getting Wistful over:

1987. Fifth Grade.
1993. Bowling, bowling, USA.
2003. Is this a Temple Bar?
