Girlfriends in 1980

My Friend Michelle and I had just got our new home perms. My Mom had spent hours with the toni curlers and stinky solution, trying to make us into beauties. Michelle's hair, being much finer than mine, really took an afro, where mine just fell in waves. She really hated that perm. Here we are as 13 year old's in March of 1980, in our rolled up jeans, hightops, and cool jackets. We were trying to look tough and aloof for the camera, but some kittens playing in the neighbors yard distracted us from being hard asses while my Mom snapped this pic with her Pentax K1000. Kittens make good distractions for photographers. Michelle and I have been friends since the 2nd grade.
