I've had countless discusions with her about clothing
ever since I was a young girl;
this one was about the colour of my shoes; our teacher
had charged us to wear white socks, black shoes, black
leggings and a white shirt for the school party;
this was mom's logic: If black is the standard,

moms are funny, aren't they? my mother wouldn't let me use hairspray when i was in high school, so i hid my hairspray in a closet and right before i went out the door, i'd spray my hair with tons of spray. of course my mother heard me (she must have had super ears) but i ran out the door. now i look back and know she was right....hair spray is terrible! your blog always makes me laugh; great sense of humor.....thanks!ReplyDelete
