WTF Wednesday - Mom Jeans
Now that I’m in my 30’s and have a baby, I am starting to wonder if I need to turn this column over to someone younger before I acquire that visual impairment that makes Mom Jeans look like a good idea. I think I might even be (gasp) an adult? I know, you young folks are thinking, “of course she’s an adult, what is she, delusional?” But it’s confusing, one minute you’re young and hip (sort of, in my case) and the next thing you know all the teenagers look ridiculous and you’re waving your walker around yelling “these kids today and their rock and roll music!”
Hell, for all I know, this has already happened. What if Thuggies are actually super cool and I am just too old to understand?
Come to think of it, there have been some warning signs. The first red flag was when I saw the pictures and thought, “those look like a tripping hazard!” Only old people worry about the potential dangers lf fashion, right? I mean, when I was 17 and wearing giant raver pants, I bet there were old people in the background wondering if I was going to trip. Oh god, I do have Mom Jeans Vision! Quick, someone let me know if Thuggies are cool so I can pretend to get it!
Wait, does that mean my jeans are all magically transformed into Mom Jeans? And my idea of Mom Jeans have re-surfaced as a hot trend without my knowledge? Shit.
I guess i have to stick to making fun of stupid gadgets like those zillion dollar goggles with the heads up display.
