You know what was absolutely adorable back in the 90s? Me. Just look at that bow, that flannel, that innocent glow that can only exist before adulting smacks it right off your face.
Yep, there really isn’t anything else quite like perusing old pics to make you feel so absolutely past your prime – unless, of course, you’re the Internet. (Or Jeff Bezos, but that’s another matter entirely.)
