“Look at the youth,” said Lulu, waving her arms around as if there were youth to be seen, as we sat in her office. She was trying to convince me not to get my new jeans shortened. They were slightly longer than I wanted them to be, so they kind of runched up at the bottom. “Look at their jeans.”
“Jeans are like curtains,” she said. “They’re supposed to come to the floor. And anyway, there’s nothing worse than a woman in heels whose jeans are too short.”
“But I don’t have any heels.”
“You might get some. Seriously. Don’t waste your money. Those jeans are hot.”
She felt so strongly about it that I decided not to get them shortened. So when you see me with the bottom of my jeans all runched up around my ankles, it’s Lulu’s fault.
