Yesterday, a colleague told me out of the blue, “OMG, you have so many grey hairs!”

Well, first of all, it’s not many. It’s just a few. Second, I didn’t have time to color my hair. I was too busy watching Sherlock and chillin’ on my sofa, thank you very much.

So I stared at this lady point blank and said, “Now tell me something I don’t know.”

If you’re having a hard time imagining it, here’s a picture of moi as I said it:


So this girl just stared at me, completely befuddled. And then she changed the subject. I literally left her speechless and it was AWESOME.

She didn’t mean any harm, by the way. We judge others by their actions, but ourselves by our intentions, and that’s not exactly fair. So her intentions were good, but her action?

Not so much.

On the same day, another girl said, “OMG, your jumper is horrendous, you need to get rid of it yesterday.”

To which I replied, “No way, it’s comfortable as fuck.”

Here’s a picture of said jumper:


I love that jumper, because I got it in a FANTASTIC promotion. It was almost for free, seriously, and it’s a freaking Polo Ralph Lauren.

Did I mention that this girl was wearing a basic jumper with a hoodie? Like a gangster or whatever? So no, lady, I’m not getting rid of my jumper.


I guess the lesson we can take from this is RESPECT yourself.




C.S. Wilde writes about fantastical worlds, love stories larger than life and epic battles. She also, quite obviously, sucks at writing an author bio. She finds it awkward that she must write this in the third person, and hopes you won’t notice.

    What made her think about being a fashionista? I’m glad that you Wonka’d her. Wait – that didn’t sound right.

    Bwahahahaha! Own them gray hairs, though. Jus’ saying. Anyone with gray (myself included) has seen some shit and you don’t mess with people who have seen some shit. LOL. For the record, you are absolutely lovely! So you go on wearing your Polo Ralph Lauren that was practically free, and blasting them panda bear rainbows of power!

    Sounded like the person was just being a jerk. Really, who has the audacity to say that to someone, especially since clothes is nothing but…clothes?? And your sweater looks absolutely fine. But your response, though…you kick ass! 😉

    What a douche bag! That jumper Rocks the Casbah!


  8. That’s pretty much up there with “You look tired.” Why not just say what you mean, “You look like shit.” Did these people not grow up with, “If you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all?” Okay, really good friends can get away with this but if they’re really good friends, they won’t try!
