Ah fads, we all have seen and lived through them, whether we regret them or not is a different story. Just in case you don't know a fad is "any form of behavior that develops among a large population and is collectively followed with enthusiasm for some period." Basically I'm talking in terms of fashion, hair, dance, collections, etc. Something you look back on & would laugh your ass off if you saw yourself.
I hit quite a few fads when I was a kid in the 90's like Pogs, but the worst was Pokemon. I was into the anime (wathing it every Saturday) Memorizing the names and order of the 150, and of course played the games. I didn't have enough for the cards, but if I did, I would have burned a good chunk of money on those pieces of paper.
When I was im high school I wore tall tees at one point... looking back, I have to say yikes, because even as a nerd I was perpetuating stereotypes in a way. However, I was simply a stupid kid in high school then. Luckly even then I was still modest enough to know that they couldn't be too long (like too the knees or something like that) like some poeple wore them because that was a little too much. The real funny thing was that I never tried acting hard.
What about you guys? The dreaded Jherri Curl? Wearing your baseball cap backwards? What did you get into that you look back and say "WHAT THE [CENSORED]?"
