100 words: Robert mid-70s

Robert was the heart-throb of Mrs. Sheldon's 2nd grade. A latte-skinned Puerto Rican boy with European features, he accented his exotic sexiness with v-necked velour shirts, tight black bell-bottom pants, and actual shoes, as opposed to the sneakers all the other boys wore. He parted his slick onyx hair down the middle, like a teen idol. He always looked as if he might break out into a spontaneous tango. He had a tinge of an accent—just enough to make the girls swoon. The girls adored him, but the boys, as you can imagine, were highly suspicious of his sartorial choices.
