Mandy Moore’s Throwback
Laura Lee - May 17, 2018


By Shel Silverstein

My dad gave me one dollar bill
'Cause I'm his smartest son,
And I swapped it for two shiny quarters
'Cause two is more than one!

And then I took the quarters
And traded them to Lou
For three dimes -- I guess he didn't know
That three is more than two!

Just then, along came old blind Bates
And just 'cause he can't see
He gave me four nickels for my three dimes,
And four is more than three!

And then I took the nickels to Hiram Coombs
Down at the seed-feed store,
And the fool gave me five pennies for them,
And five is more than four!

And then I went and showed my dad,
And he got red in the cheeks
And closed his eyes and shook his head --
Too proud of me to speak!

When Mandy Moore shared a ’90s throwback photo of herself on Instagram, we all ached from nostalgia.  Moore today is 34 years old and a highly successful actress, staring on This Is Us.  However her career began completely on a different note.

For most of us, she’s one of the major pop princesses of the ’90s, especially because of her single Candy.  Don’t lie, we all had her picture on our walls.  The epic picture she posted depicted it all. A zig-zag center part, porcupine spikes, a slicked-down crown, and no shortage of hair jewels.

While the beauty world has moved on since then, we will always get a kick out of remembering how creative we once were.
