(Not my butt. I wish.)
Day 1 was a snow day (oh, wimpy Americans! For the first time, my Canadian “hardiness” is apparent to me!), and Day 2 begins with a real dilemma. What should I wear? Oh yes, this is the dilemma of spoiled girls across the globe, but today the problem does not present itself as it usually does.
I start my day by looking at my 3 pairs of jeans in circulation. The first has a pretty smattering of rhinestones filling in the horseshoes on the butt pockets; the second bears a number and a claim that they’re for all mankind, although really, how much of mankind can afford them??; the third is a plain, mommish pair from Old Navy that cost $20. It is LL’s first day of school, a private Jewish day school that I can’t actually afford.
It’s probably obnoxious to request financial aid and then show up in jeans that retail for about $250.
What do you think?
Readers, I’ll confess: Shame got the better of me. I went with the Old Navys.
