Fashion & Such

Um, how do I break this to her gently?

"Sweetheart, you just don't look completely country in this photograph. Maybe it's the sunglasses? Because really, everything else is fine. I'm very glad you coordinated your teacup to the shades. That is such a nice touch."

Do you want to know something? If you don't, stop reading, if you do, here goes: I spent most of my childhood in the city, but we were raised with a "country" work ethic. Then we moved to the country. We got dogs, we also go leashes. Very city folk, I'm afraid. It sort of labels you. A few years ago we moved out of state, again to the country, but this time further out. Yes, we we're moving from the country, but we still somehow appeared to be unaccustomed city folk, not used to the rigors of country living. We do fine, it's just that we don't seem to inspire a lot of confidence in our abilities to cope with the "wild."

Actually, in all honesty, I do have a bit of a problem: I am not a city girl, nor am I really a country girl. (Panic - am I from this planet?)

Aww, nice fashion picture. :P

I guess there do have to be some people that come from this planet who do not belong to either group. It's a good group, the middle group. :)

Very, very funny. :D As for the city/country, I'd say I'm probably a "neighborhood" girl. That's where I feel most at home. Though now, I feel most at home in my home, which is in the country. Huh??? Whatever. Tell Kyna that's an amazingly CUTE shirt, btw!
