Marissa: Can I go buy a dress, I only have 3 outfits for church.
Me: I have one black skirt that I have been wearing for the last 4 years every Sunday.
Marissa: Well, I am not saying your old, but older people don't care about their appearance or styles. They pretty much wear the same thing all the time anyway.
Me: What? We do too care about how we look. Believe me, if I had 10 different outfits, I would wear them.
Marissa: Well it is more important for teenagers to have different clothes to wear because we are conscious about style and how we look.
*Sigh* *BIG SIGH* You know, I just had a revelation.......the reason all the "old" people wear the same clothes is because they are sacrifing their own fashion statement and needs and are buying clothes for their children.
