Yes, I Still Have It - The Mario Brothers Sweatshirt from the 1990s

We moved last summer into what our realtor called our "forever house," which I'm guessing is supposed to be the opposite of a "starter home." For me, forever just seems to refer to how long it's going to take me to unpack.

Still, sometimes unpacking uncovers possessions that are truly priceless. So, I've decided to start sharing them here with all of you in my new feature, Yes, I Still Have It

First up, the sweatshirt my incredibly talented and thoughtful BFF made me back when we were in high school and I was Mario Brothers obsessed. In those good ol days, there wasn't branded everything. If you wanted a Mario Brothers sweatshirt, you had to make it yourself (or have an incredibly talented and thoughtful BFF to make it for you). And, this hand-painted version is about a million times better then anything you could ever buy.

So if you're reading, ALC, not only do Yes, I Still Have It, my equally-Mario-Brothers-obsessed daughter loves wearing it, too.


Twenty years later, and it's still totally awesome.

Man, if only the stuff I had squirreled away was half as cool as this. I still have research from the time I spent as a debater in high school. Please don't call Hoarders on me.

My how life was different back then! Just a kid trying to save a tiny princess in the castle! :)

This is basically us wearing a Pong t-shirt. Mario must look like a Model T to these kids.
