Friday Flashbacks* (*insert time travel type sounds) – Here are some clues…

Your first clue for this week’s Flashback is:

Your second clue is this:

Look closely and you can see the answer if you don’t know it already!

Want me to spell it out for you?

OK.

It’s…

I was in primary school when The Kids from Fame turned my whole life upside down. The legwarmers, the synchronised dancing on cars with a couple of hundred other people you’d never met before, the songs… THE SONGS! (“Hi-Fidelity Hi! (hi, hi, hi)…” anyone?!).

I could not wait to get to high school and do all this cool stuff because, yes, that’s exactly what high school would be like. And you’d have a super duper pianist like Bruno, and a best friend like Doris and of course Tony would love, love, love you, and, and, and…

Until I got to high school and it was nothing like it. Talk about coming down to earth with a bump.

But it’s ok, I’ll forgive you, “Fame”, because you were the original High School Musical for us thirty-somethings.

And if I don’t forgive you, the long abandoned legwarmers may resurrect themselves and superglue themselves to my calves for the rest of my life.

And that would not be good.
