Our girl, Trina




We're sitting in the coffee shop putting on our best impression of coolness. We're middle-age women exuding style and of course our sexiness. We're on our perch, a table of cougars checking out the eye-candy when Trina comes in with her ghetto butt, deflating our fantasy.
Swear that girl really needs a talkin' to. But how do you tell a forty-five year old woman, “No girl, Forever 21 doesn't look good on your wide ass. For real?” It's suppose to be fly. Instead she looks like a bird flapped out and tired. What do we say instead? “Hey girl, lookin' good. Sit down.”








This week's prompt: flapped. Join us.

  1. The Officer In Charge of the office where I work is a woman who clearly wears the same kind of clothes she did in high school, back in the 70s. Guess what her obsession is, when it comes to all of us underlings? Appearance. It would be funny if it weren't so maddening.

  2. Well, we have a dress code, too. I was told my jean-like jacket was out of dress code, but young women routinely wear sauge casings for slacks. Sadder is most think they are not only dressed appropriately but that the clothing is flattering. Has sausage ever looked chic to you?

    Still this is about our girlfriends who have forgotten what their sexy really looks like.

    Thanks.

  5. As I got older, I asked my daughter (now 24) to never let me dress age-inappropriate. I've seen too many women of a certain age dress in clothing I wouldn't have let my teenage daughter out of the house wearing.

    1. Carrie, I remember when I wanted to be older and dress like a woman, stylish like my mother. Now we have grown women wanting to dress like their daughters. I don't think we need to be dowdy or even conservative. I do think by your middle years you ought to know how to look good, stylish, funky, sexy or whatever without looking like you're desperately trying to be 20.
