Ranting but Not Raving

Lately, I've been trying to be grateful. But I have some rants, and here they are:
  1. There are almost no cute socks for women with large feet. Multi-colored stripes? Polka dots? Funky patterns? Large-footed women can just forget about 'em. We certainly can't expect to buy them in a physical store; they must be purchased via the Internets. And you better believe the selection is tiny.

  2. A good purse is hard to find. I can't remember exactly when gigantic purses became the norm, but why did they? Why are purses the size of my torso? Women with enormous purses look a little ridiculous -- like they're going to fall over from the weight of those shiny leather bags. Why does everybody feel the need to channel Mary Poppins? (And let's not forget: Mary Poppins carried everything she owned in that bag because she moved around a lot, not because she was making a fashion statement.)

  3. A lot of people are really bad at determining which photos they should post on their Facebook photo albums. They're usually the kind of people who only post flattering pictures of themselves, but couldn't care less whether other people look downright awful.

Thing I am grateful for: electric blankets!

The big purses came about because diaper bags got cuter and started looking like purses, and other women thought they actually were and were jealous.....I don't carry a purse at all, but when our baby is born I will def have a cute diaper bag and not one with fake animals printed all over them.

It's not just purses. Everything's bigger now - cars, houses, people, jewelry, portion sizes, you get the idea.

Dear Anonymous,
I think I just established that not everything is bigger now . . . What about the socks?!?

sara, maybe anonymous meant that everything is GETTING bigger. let's be optimistic and hope that socks are next in line to be the next BIG thing.
