I used to wear overalls.
I don’t anymore. I can’t figure out if I stopped wearing them because they became off trend, or if I just decided they were no longer a good look for me. Also, why don’t I roll my jeans anymore? Is that because no one else is doing it anymore, so I stopped?
That would make me sort of a lemming, a slave to what other people are doing. I’m not happy with that image of myself. In fact, I reject it, it must be something else. I’m not trendy, I never have been, so if I liked overalls in 1987, what’s wrong with them now?
First thought, they’re juvenile. I’m not a teenager anymore. I’m older, more sophisticate, apart from the fact that I pretty much wear jeans every day. So, jeans can be sophisticated. My tastes have just changed and I no longer think the whole bib thing works. It has nothing to do with trend, or what others are doing.
I can change my mind. Certainly my prerogative. I’ve grown up, that’s exactly what it is.
Perfect. I feel better, resolved.
Now I just need to figure out why I stopped rolling my jeans in the 80s, but lately I’ve started rolling them again with heels. The rolling stopped when I went to college. I remember it vividly.
I stopped because no one was…Oh, damn it. I am a lemming.
