Ok, you asked... I was 19 years old and I had just moved to Atlanta, GA from Pittsburgh, PA and I was influenced by Madonna's (singer) fashion. I wore a black top that touched my body above my belly button and a long black skirt that hugged my hips. I wore one long earring and one short one. Remember the fishnet gloves? Yes, I wore them too.

I was dating a guy named Vince and he was truly a country boy that grew up on a farm in Cartersville, GA. His idea of romance one scorching long summer day was to make love in his barn on hay while the clouds brought a heavy down pour of rain. The barn had a tin roof. Imagine the sound of rain hitting the tin roof. He planned the day and I was submissive to his plans. Yes, one of the songs that replayed during this unforgettable experience was Bob Marley's, Stir it up!

We tried to remove the hay from my clothes after they were removed from the stacked bundle of hay, but to no avail. Sigh… What a day!
