T Minus 30

We didn’t much care for political correctness in New Jersey back in 1977. Is this practice of dressing children up as Indians still a popular among elementary school teachers and camp counselors today?


I was not pleased about this picture being taken, but I was happy that I got to be an Indian instead of a Pilgrim. Indians were way cooler. I think my vest had fringe. The boy on my left is the neighbor from down the street who I punched in fifth grade. He’s a doctor now.


  1. Look how you’re already seriously tall. Look how your blondish hair is so slightly already misbehaving. Look how you’re already NOT looking at the photographer OR at either of the boys next to you.

    Whudda freakin’ DYKE!

    I love you.

  2. i like how the Indians of 1977 wore sweater vests and didn’t fold their hands in prayer like that stupid pilgrim.

    and your lady gay’s comment makes me wonder – when did all the curls come?
