Return of the Valley Girl

So like this weekend Uncle Jeffy and I totally went to visit our son at college. On the second leg of our trip we like had the misfortune of sitting directly in front of two chicks on the airplane who totally were hell bent on bringing back the dreaded valley girls of the 80's. If you are of like a certain age, you totally know the rad lingo, you seriously know the gnarly accent, and you can fer sure like totally picture the excellent fashion of the 80's. I mean, O, My God, these girls did not like seriously stop talking the entire 75 minute flight. They were like going to be bridesmaids in a friend's wedding which was like seriously going to be so much fun, but this was like the tenth wedding they have been in in like the past two years, and like it is getting like seriously expensive. And O, My God, can you like totally even believe Jason is going to be there after what he even did to Amanda? Just shut up! I mean seriously.

Well folks, I learned a few traveling tips this weekend:

1.  Always pack a good set of earphones on your carry on luggage;
2.  Sometimes the outrageous price of in flight cocktails suddenly seems worth every penny; and
3.  The saying "always a bridesmaid but never a bride" like totally makes sense, 'cause who the fuck would marry that!

  1. Unfortunately I do remember. Do people still talk like that?
    I was on a plane last week and so thankful I had my headphones.

    1. We could not believe people still talk like that, but these chicks did. Sadly, we did not have headphones and suffered through it!

    1. Exactly. It's times like these when the old tape recorder would come in handy.

  7. Ugh. Valley girls are the worst. And it's not even just marrying one. Imagine hooking up with one. I wonder if that's what a valley girl calls out in bed.

    "Like, like, like!... like, like, OH MY GOD YOU GUYS!"

  8. Fer sure, fer sure. Them valley gurls - there is no cure. I grew up in LA, and a few people have told me I seem like I'm from the valley. I like told them to take a flying leap into the Encino Galleria. I'd seriously never been like so insulted in my life.

  10. Wow. Valley Girl is like riding a bike. As I read your post, my brain knew exactly the right tone and twang to take on. It's like I was there. So glad I wasn't...
