Yes, I know it’s almost October – sue me!
Truthfully, I always had a blast shopping with my Mother (and Grandma), but I know most of you out there weren’t exactly doing cartwheels at the prospect of trudging through a mall trying on new clothes.
The guys know what I’m talking about, right?
Just try to think back to some of the outfits your mom picked out, if you can handle the memories, that is! As a child of the Seventies, I know that clothing styles have come a long way since I committed my string of fashion crimes against humanity, but that doesn’t change the fact that parents and kids don’t see eye to eye when it comes to what is considered acceptable in public school.
And God help you if you run into anyone you know while on your little excursion; I nearly lost an eye diving into a rack of dress shirts once!
If you look too clean, you’re going to get teased. If you’re dressed too mature, you’ll get beat up. And if you look like and accountant, then you better persuade your mom to let you buy a quality pair of runners because you’ll be hoofing it like Forrest Gump!
