2. My parents were modern in the 20s. My mother wore short skirts and cut her hair short. She also worked for a summer in New York. Both she and my father graduated from a university. They loved to dance the latest dances. After they married, they moved away from their small towns to live in Chicago, where Dad had a job working as a highway engineer for the federal government. Mom also got a job working in an office.
