It’s 2004. You’re in your bedroom, collaged in pages from YM and Teen People. You’re listening to a Destiny’s Child CD on your Sony discman. You hear the doorbell ring, it’s your best friend. They want to go to the mall and check out the earrings at Claire’s.

Covid-19? Kylie Jenner? Tik Tok? Housing crisis?

You put some butterfly clips in your hair, grab your Steve Madden platform slides, and tell your mom you’ll be home before it gets dark. Time for shopping and an Orange Julius.

Life is good.
