Odd Old Stuff

So, what is the weirdest thing you have ever saved?  I have saved a lot of odd items but here is my weirdest...

Do you even know what that is?








If you do, you might be as old as am I.






It is an old gym uniform.









It comes complete with built-in bloomers! 

This was my P.E. uniform when I lived in Minnesota in Junior High. Actually, I should call it a Phy (pronounced Fi) Ed uniform. Gym class is called P.E. here in the West but when we moved to Minnesota when I was in 6th grade I had to learn a new way to talk. P.E. was Phy Ed. and they kept talking about some weird place called the lavatory. I didn't know what that meant. 

Anyway, we were required to buy and wear these funny little things. I did not feel beautiful in it. So, when we moved away, why did I save it? I HAVE NO IDEA! Maybe I liked the color? Maybe I thought I would make it into something else? I don't remember. Now, I am just waiting for it to come back into vogue.
This is what I do know, though. Once you have saved something for over 40 years, you can't get rid of it. After all, what if some museum calls and wants it for a display? Wowsa, I feel kind of old.

  1. When I looked at the first photo I thought, "That looks like the old gym suits we had when I was a freshman in High School." So I read on--yep, gym suit. So adorable. At least we didn't have to buy ours. And sophomores got white shorts and shirts that were much better!

    And--Happy Birthday, Susie!!
