I have had a Senior’s Card for awhile now. All it really does is announce that I am over sixty and that I am entitled to cheaper public transport.
As the ticket officer looks suspiciously at my leggins, gothic inspired boots and short skirt, wanting more proof that I am really over 60, I clutch my senior’s card and momentarily ponder upon the image I should be projecting now.
A bit of a search on the net found this timely advice.
Despite what you may have seen on the streets, the following combinations DO NOT go together and should be avoided:
- A nose ring and bifocals
- Spiked hair and bald spots
- A pierced tongue and dentures
- Mini skirts and support hose
- Ankle bracelets and corn pads
- Speedo’s and cellulite
- A belly button ring and a gall bladder surgery scar
- Unbuttoned disco shirts and a heart monitor
- Midriff shirts and a midriff bulge
- Bikinis and liver spots
- Short shorts and varicose veins
- Inline skates and a walker –
And last, but not least:
- Thongs and Depends
I cannot say I have had an urge to wear an unbuttoned disco shirt or short shorts but I suppose it is good to have some boundaries. Perhaps some of those more enlightened souls out there might help provide some balance and direct me by providing some advice about dress code for my senior years.
