Recently, I actually stated out loud: "I'm really getting into earrings". I followed this up by saying "That is literally the most vapid thing I've ever said."
I have a few thoughts about this.
1. I've recently discovered that earrings really do make an outfit/makeup job pop. I may spend all this time getting ready and then look in the mirror and think "Oh I feel like I look so plain! Sigh." But if I pop on some giant gold hoops then BAM! I look like a pale latina princess. (Refer to attached photo. Totes pale latina.)
2. There are arguably many things going on in the world that I "should" spend my time thinking about. There are "issues" that are worth "getting into". So I tried tuning into the news the other only to get distracted by musing about whether Mitt Romney would look better in studs or something dangly. Kim-Jong Un would definitely rock something bold and glittery. And I think it goes without saying that Harper's approval ratings would skyrocket if he strapped some Swarovskis to those lobes. I mean, that's for suresies.
3. My previous 2 points haven't really helped fight that whole "vapid" thing have they? Well to that I say:
Who's vapid NOW?? Yeah...me still. For sure still me, actually. Sigh. I'd better go put on my gold hoops. They always make me feel better.
