21 going on 80
I went shopping today after work, and somewhere in the middle of a trendy young store I stopped and felt old. Maybe it was the fact that I was still in my boring work clothes, maybe it was the young girls giggling as I tried up a pair of pedal pushers up against me, or maybe it was just a combination of the two. I definitely feel too old to go out and buy a pair of pedal pushers, yet I will gladly roll my jeans up to pedal pusher length on a hot day, which is a little bizarre I admit. Also while I'm on the subject of feeling old, when did combat trousers become tight? I remember in my day when combats were nice and loose, perfect for slobbing around in. Now today I come to find some lovely slobbing pants (pants in the trouser sense, not the knicker sense) and the eejits have made them skin tight, what is the point? I don't want to show off my booty, I just want loose slobby pants. Now I feel old.
