Mother and I were shopping before Christmas and we came across some Dickie pants. And while I reconized the brand name, I was having trouble remembering if they were good or not. But I was trying so hard to be helpful, and I was tired.
So after racking my brain for any revelant information and uttering a few not so helpful sentences, I wrapped up with the perfect political answer: I said in a slow, thoughtful voice, "Dickies, are, um, well, Dickies....are....a......brand......of..........pant."
I'm so glad I got that clarified for her. What would she ever have done without me?
