Seersucker Pants

So, today I went to Target and I was enjoying my Taco Del Mar mondo burrito in my car (and spilling some of it down my shirt, further enhancing my lovely ensemble of sweaty sweats, frizzy hair and tomato red face, courtesy of a one hour walk on the trail) and I was people-watching before heading into the store. So, this lady parks and gets out and she's obviously taking her elderly mother on her weekly shopping trip. Mother gets out of the car, and she's wearing those huge sunglasses that old people wear (why?) that look like those things they give you at the eye doctor, holding a cane (in her defense, she was probably half-blind) but here's what she was wearing: seersucker pants, a white blouse, and, I kid you not, a purse shaped like a watermelon. And all I could think was, oh please, someone, please never let me wear seersucker pants and carry a watermelon purse! I know, I'm so mean, I shouldn't make fun of an old lady. Oh, and one more detail - the pants were pulled up to her ribcage and she was wearing a belt. And I'm thinking, she's half-blind so who picked out that outfit? And that PURSE? Yes, the evil daughter. I will never make my mom wear seersucker pants! I promise to dress her in jeans and a t-shirt until the day she dies. And her only accessory will be a glass of CC and water, that I promise you. Anyway, my mom never carried a purse. Much less one shaped like fruit. Geez......

I was trying to picture your mom with a watermelon purse. It could be cute when she is riding around "topless" with a drink in one hand and a watermelon over her shoulder. Maybe a spiked watermelon!! I know your mom reads this blog, so just kidding I love you Dianne.

HEHE! I want to get Mimi a waltermelon purse now! Oh my GOD though, I'll never let this happen to MY mom either! Lord. But you want to talk bad fashion, come spend a DAY with me in this place. Every single time I go out I see a brand new fashion faux pas. The Asians are the best... Saturday it was an overweight Korean gal in pink and orange horizontal stripes (Hayley???), purple leggings and yellow ballet flats. Foxy!

OK...now I have read this blog and the comments made and I'll have to say at this very moment you are one of my favorite daughters, thinking of me and my one addiction, CC and Water!! What a thoughtful thing to do. Like Connie and I have always told you kids, do whatever you have to to keep us happy and clean, but NEVER let us stink! Some of our "wal mart" customers are dressed like you described and I feel so sorry for them. But the jeans and tee shirts and my drink (wrapped in a paper towel so it won't make my hands wet), well, who could ask for more?? LOLOL I love you!! Mom

And...Sydney..please NEVER buy me any kind of purse...I hate purses and you'd be stuck with a watermelon purse of your very own!! hahaha Too funny!! XXXOOO
