Today my girls were searching through my box of costumes and clothes and accessories that I have kept from the '80's in search of Halloween costumes. Everyone has one of these boxes, right? You know, just in case...
Anyway, my 12 year old daughter picks up a pair of zipper earrings and says in a tone frequently used by 12 year old girls everywhere, "Why did you wear those?"
"That was what was in style." I say.
" You wore what was in style?!?!" says my daughter in complete shock.
"Um, yes," I say.
"Why?" she asks.
"Well, I guess because I went to school and that is what lots of people who go to school do." I reply.
"I don't like to wear what's in style. I like to wear whatever I want."
