Default Cruising Fashions

Thought you might enjoy these!

Many of us 50 and older are quite confused about how we should present ourselves. We're unsure about the kind of image we are projecting, and whether or not we are correct as we try to conform to the fashions that the designers inflict upon the world. So here are the results of a study of the situation. Despite what you may have seen on the streets, the following combinations DO NOT go together and should be avoided:
>
>1. A nose ring and bifocals
>2. Spiked hair and a bald spot
>3. A pierced tongue and dentures
>4. Miniskirt and support stockings
>5. Ankle bracelet and corn plasters
>6. Speedo bathing suit and a beer belly
>7. Belly button ring and a gall bladder surgery scar
>8. Unbuttoned shirt and a heart monitor
>9. Midriff shirt and a midriff bulge
>10. A bikini and incontinence protection
>11. Short shorts and varicose veins
>12. In-line skates and a walker
>13. Tattoos and wrinkles and liver spots
>14. Tube tops and stretch marks
>
>Please keep these basic guidelines foremost in your mind when you shop.Thank you for your cooperation. Keep America beautiful!!!

You beat me to it, Donna. A friend sent this list to me a few days ago ang I'm still laughing. I've seen about half of the list, and I can't believe what people will wear.
