whoa! seriously, i'm not capable of sluttin' it up enough to go downtown. i feel like an old lady saying this, but i'm gonna write it anyway:
when did it become a rule that you either had to look like Barbie or dress like a skank to go dancing downtown? in college, our version of getting "dressed-up" (read: mildly slutty) to go out was a tank top and jeans. mostly because we'd get so hot dancing (but lived in freezing-cold Duluth). as time has progressed, jeans have become lower-rise and skirts have been introduced to my clubbin' clothes collection. but, i proudly admit that i have never given a free show while out shakin' my groove thang. that's more than i can say for a few drunken bar patrons over the weekend. i was totally appalled! where is the self-respect?! where is the "mystery"?! yeah, there is none, not when you go dancing in an ultra-ultra-mini skirt that shows the world.
sure there were many 21yo's at the bars on saturday night, but i wasn't in the minority of people my age, from what i could tell (and i was 100% sober, so i'm not hazily recalling). but, in my black shorts and halter top, there were moments when i felt too-clothed. huh? shorts & a tank and i felt like i was wearing TOO MUCH clothing? eeeks! there was a girl in a clingy-spandexy dress that ended just below her booty, who pulled it up as she danced. really? 'cause it isn't short enough yet, you wanted to reveal your hip bone, or what? seriously, i'm not going to be surprised when i see some chick in a bra and underwear!
am i really getting old and prudie (no, i didn't say prunie)...or is it inappropriate for a girl to wear a skirt so short that it just barely covers her rump while she's standing upright, and for her to dance wildly - showing off her goods?
