There Was an Old Woman...

For a brief time I was friends with an older woman who, for lack of a strictly scientific description, had several loose screws. There were more than a few signs, but each one in and of itself wasn't particularly disturbing.

One day she bent over to fetch something from her purse, and I noticed a thong rising up several inches above the waistband of her extremely low-rise jeans. I was given momentary pause, during which I thought "Late 40s, right?" The combination struck me as oddly age-inappropriate, but being judgmental is a specialty of mine, so I let it go.

And then I read this article:
"Woman Sues Victoria's Secret Claiming Thong Injury."

And I realized it isn't just age-inappropriate to wear thongs in your later years. It's downright dangerous. And then I felt better because I realized, I wasn't being judgmental when I saw that thong. I was being a concerned friend. Which should come as a surprise to no one.
