gripe

I have a couple of things that have annoyed me over the past few days.......

What's with pants and dresses being combined? I know that this was a fashion statement a couple of years ago - why? I have no idea BUT I thought we had all grown up by now......If there is a legitimate reason to where pants and dresses - I haven't heard or seen it! Yesterday I saw a woman wearing wide leg pants with a v-neck, no sleeve dress......Huh? What made it worse was the fact that she worked in a clothing store! The dress was not a long shirt, nor was it a short dress. It was in fact a long, long dress. Below the knee length. What is the go?

I am NOT a fashionista (just writing that makes me laugh as I am sitting here in my tack pants and polar-fleece) but this is a fashion that I am struggling with. Who thought this up? Why were they allowed to get away with this? I just do not get it!!!!

Why do people need to take up the whole road when they are driving? Many times in the past few days there have been people with mobile phones in hand (so illegal!), arguing with their passengers, or helping their kids (who are in the backseat) get something. As a consequence there has been a diversion to the other side of the road - sometimes in a near accident.........

Concentrate people!

Ok - I am fine now. Just had a massage and I feel much, much better.....

I find it interesting that you are annoyed by the pants-dress thing. I think it's acceptable when the dress could be a long shirt or worn as a dress by itself. And maybe that's how the trend started. First it was with short dresses, and then it got out of control? Well, I knew a woman who often wore a particular skirt. She obviously loved this skirt, and in winter weather, to keep wearing the skirt, she'd put pants on underneath. Somehow she pulled it off.

Oh Widget! I LOVE wearing pants plus dress, it keeps me warm and doesn't look TOO odd (most days).
