It's happened.

This is going to be a short one. (This may be a first).

But I thought I would share news that I had my first epiphany of truly being a nerdy, un-hip person. ....While attempted to be funny.

I was checking out a sprained ankle of a kid at the high school the other day. And when she took off her socks -- she had a BRIGHT teal and HOT pink sock on.

So to be "funny", I said "Oh jeez! Your socks aren't matching! Must be laundry day today??" (har...har...)

While her eyeballs were completely rolled to the back of her socket.... she looked at me and said:

"You sound like my Dad."

Ouch, zing!! Abby is taken DOWN by the 15 year old girl. I am offically "that weird lady".

Next thing you know....I will be carrying my life around in a fanny pack (purses are just too much hassle to carry around!).

God help me.

....and just to clear any confusing (for I was confused)....

It is apparently "cool" to not match your socks now days for kids.

Love it! I think it's a right of passage to be on the receiving end of an eye roll. When it started happening to me, it made me think back on my snotty teen years & wish I could take back alot of the snotty behavior!!

Ha ha, I know about the unmatching socks...Sophia is famous for it. I had no idea she was being fashion forward, however, until we went to a sock store in CA and saw that it is the current trend.
