The world is crazier than most people know. But I know. I was a clinical social worker for forty years. I am a witness. I retired from social work to write about the sad, the mad, and the savage; with whom I have spent most of my life. I have decided to translate these stories into fiction, because, as a co-worker once said, "You couldn't make this sh*t up. No one would believe you."

The Life 2.0 Wardrobe

Ah….what is the savvy Life 2.0 kitten wearing these days? Check it out….

  •         Jeans, natch. Don’t worry about the raggedy look so popular among the youngstas. You’ve worn them for fifteen years so they’re just getting good.
  •        T-shirts, yeah. Usually tie-dyed. This is because after ten years of dropping food on the same shirt, you need to blend the colors. If you can’t afford the dye, circle the biggest spots with permanent magic marker (if you got it, flaunt it!).
  •      Shoes and boots you got at the thrift store. They’re already broken in, and the beat up look goes with the outfit.
  •         Fringed jackets. The fringe hides the wear spots along the hem.
  •         Bandanas. They hide the roots you can’t afford to keep up with.
  •         Glasses? Get the $10 readers at the supermarket. The TRUE fashion plates steal one in every color.
  •         Underwear? What underwear?

  1. Janey, I'm with you on the whole list, except the glasses. I get all mine at the Dollar store.

  2. Actually Marty, you have a point. The only thing you need in order to read is bigger letters. :)
