th

not gone, just resting.  and maybe morphing into a curmudgeon.  my latest thoughts on fashion have been decidedly….cranky.  for instance, there’s this:  a rant against short shorts.  who would have imagined that when young women started sporting really short shorts oh maybe a year or two ago, that this trend would go mainstream??  now one sees women of all sorts and descriptions sporting shorts that give literal meaning to the term.  mr. noir thinks the trend is cool.  not me.  i can’t explain it (likely something in my upbringing or my feelings about my own body) but i’ve just always felt that the top few inches of a person’s thighs were PRIVATE.  this brings me to the topic of women’s tennis outfits….but i’ll spare you for now.

ok ok esme.  if a person wants to look however they want to look, it’s none of your business!  avert your eyes!  hum a little tune!  don’t get your panties in a twist!!  remember, YOU don’t have to wear short shorts.

phew!! glad i got that one off my……chest!

curmudgeonly yours,

esme

May 19, 2014
