For those of you who follow both Carrie's blog and mine, you know we're taking a class together. I'm inspired by her Monday post to offer my own challenge.
The assignment is to choose a particular year, and without telling the year, write about it using cultural references. Here are the references that stood out for me:
An actor is elected president.
Sandra Day O'Connor becomes the first female justice of the Supreme Court.
Prince Charles and Lady Diana get married.
The first American test tube baby is born.
"Endless Love" by Diana Ross and Lionel Richie is a hit.
Mork and Mindy get married.
"Internet", "Post-its", and "AIDS" become part of the American lexicon.
Luke and Laura get married.
Princess Diana announces her first pregnancy, on my birthday.
