Seen at the Zoo today…
This was one sight captured at the zoo today. While I loved seeing the elephants, the gorilla (only one was out, but he was entertaining), the meerkats and the monkeys and the bears, I did NOT enjoy seeing women in leggings. I’m going to have nightmares about this for weeks!
It’s no secret that I have returned from Vietnam a bit heavier than I normally am. And it’s no secret that Americans are way way way fatter than the Vietnamese. I, myself, could easily stand to loose about 10 pounds (maybe twelve after I’ve eaten all those Christmas cookies!). But I am in MUCH better shape than the woman pictured here, YET I would NEVER subject anyone to my legs and ass being squeezed into a pair of tights/leggings or whatever you want to call these fashionless bits of cotton.
I get that San Diego is a more causal kind of town. We have a certain culture of laid back-ness here that is unique to only us. BUT, have a little self-respect people, and do us all a favor – put some real clothes on!!! Stop wearing your pajamas in public! I am horrified by all these women who are walking around in sweats, leggings and what looks like pajama pants! Trust me, we cannot pull it off the same way the SE Asians can!
I am seriously very disturbed by this trend and the more women I see who are dressing like this, the closer I get to saying something to one of them. Even if I had a perfect body, I would not be dressed like this in public. Same goes for all the young girls who are wearing jean cut-off shorts and Ugg boots. It doesn’t work. It’s lazy. I am feeling embarrassed for Americans at the moment.
I’m not the most fashionable person by any means (please – I think jeans and a black t-shirt is the best outfit ever), but even if I were headed to the gym, my pants would not be so tight and I would not try to squeeze my fat ass into a tight cotton sausage casing. Please, please, please ladies – put some clothes on and cover that shit up! I want to see this trend on the extinction list!
Other than that, the World Famous San Diego Zoo was wonderful! And it was another sunny and beautiful day in America’s Finest City!
Here are some photos of the better-looking creatures:
