I’m good at math. I love math. I have an engineering degree if you could not tell by my accent. And it’s also why my grammar is lacking.
If I may do some easy math – it has always been my understanding that if A=B and B=C, then A=C. Yes?
So let’s do the math here…
I bought this fabulous Mini Boden jacket for Eloise last year. She acted like I was killing her slowly that I would make her wear POLKA-DOTS on her body and OMG BROWN AND BLUE together – HOW UGLY can that be. Like, OMG she would die if I made her wear this ugly jacket. So I let her be cold and put the jacket away for a younger sister to wear someday.
Two weeks ago Eloise chose her new backpack and lunchbox from Pottery Barn Teen. It looks like this.
Take a moment.
Yes – it is brown with blue polka-dots. When it arrived I was like “OMG I have seen something just like that somewhere…now where, where might I have seen that…..”
Oh yeah – this backpack and lunchbox you chose LOOKS JUST LIKE THE JACKET I BOUGHT FOR YOU THAT YOU REFUSED TO WEAR!
I ran up the stairs taking them two at a time to fetch the rejected coat still perfectly sealed in plastic and said “LOOK – you now have a backpack and lunchbox to match your new Fall jacket!”
And she replied “OMG I would never wear anything in brown with blue polka-dots. That is so ugly!”
