Honestly, i feel more like my mother every day. This is not a good thing.
But we have friends-of-friends in town who are here in town for their daughter to attend a two-day college orientation. We live in a large urban area on the east coast and very close to this university so we said, “come on over for drinks and then we’ll walk to this very cool Thai restaurant down the street.” They asked what they should wear and I said, “really casual…a sundress…even just nice long pants” only to find out that the 18-year-old soon-to-be-freshman has with her only two pairs of Nike shorts and 3 t-shirts. I said, “hey just wear whatever you wore on the flight and that’ll work.” But – you guessed it – she wore a pair of Nike shorts and a t-shirt.
I don’t know…i know many of you will jump in and say, “hey that’s how kids dress” but, i mean, she’s not 10! And that’s what she wore for two days, meeting her professors, signing up for classes, attending academic briefings.
Not sure why this has riled me up…but, in any case, we’re going to a burger place instead…but jeez louise.
Anyway, get off my lawn, kids.
