A sure sign that we no longer belong to the ... um ... younger generation, is our puzzlement over their hair. I work with a young fellow who has "Zac Efron hair", and I am amazed at how he manages to keep his hair in place all day. When he turns to speak to anyone, he moves his whole body, never just his head. He looks absolutely adorable, and completely silly. Who would ever have guessed that Bobby Goldsboro hair would be recycled again? How do they keep it that way? Is femininity the new masculinity?
All of us have pictures, hidden away in the deepest, darkest recesses of our photo albums, of ourselves with "baby bath hair". Remember that? And when our own children came along, we inflicted the same ordeal on them, and then took their picture. I think every living, breathing soul has a picture of themself with baby bath hair. Well, for goodness sake, who knew we were turning these unfortunate babies -- the boys, anyway -- into sex symbols? It seems baby bath hair is enough to make a teenage girl hyperventilate.
Does anyone remember these guys? Apparently they're back in style. Everything old is new again. I still think George was the cute one. Paul looked too much like a girl. Maybe it was the hair.
