Boudoir, Home and Garden, Second Life, tarte.

One day as I was walking with my teenyboppers through the soggy streets of downtown Seattle, I saw a shirt in a store window with a quote that made me realize how jaded my outlook on life has become:

“A sass a day, keeps the basics away.”

Why is it, the older we get, the less tolerant we are of empty noise? And when I say empty, I don’t mean the passerby on her cell phone complaining she’s late for her 9-5, nor do I mean the ever roaring traffic on a sunny Seattle day.

I turned to ask the middle child, like the newbie mother I am, “What does it mean to be, basic?”

“It mean’s that you’re a Coachella Cliche`, Mom. Its when you follow the trend and it means you’re too mainstream.”

Well hell’s bells.

I had grown up too fast in my own life, put on my rose colored glasses in early adulthood. You could even say I was blissfully ignorant. A housewife raising three itty bitty babies and homeschooling while going through dialysis treatments every other day? You bet your bottom I wanted to shut out the world…and its noise.

I caught up to the other ducklings with a lighter step and a hint of a smile. When DD#2 asked me if I thought she was ‘basic’, I giggled a little.

“No babygirl. You are far from basic or ‘Coachella Cliche`’. You are classy and sassified!”

They are going to be just fine in this crazy, noisy, basic world.
