X-Rated? ABC WEDNESDAY-"X"


X-RATED? Hardly, but are young adults totally oblivious on how they appear in public?

  1. I can highly recommend the therapeutic effect of the "Geriatric Rant" tag.
    I use them all the time and I've yet to determine any adverse effects....

  2. Oh, I so agree! Thongs should be banned in civilized best-dressed circles! Or at least worn on the feet!

    Great shot for X. That was my hardest one when I did ABC Wednesday.

  3. Lack of parent discipline?

  4. Your photo presents a challenge. How to leave a comment while speechless.

  5. Reminds me of a co-worker. That can not be comfortable.

  6. Dave's comment is a howl. I can forgive the sloppiness and the risque; I won't forgive that they call it fashion. LOL!

  7. I just remember what my mother would say when she didn't quite approve of what I was wearing; "did you look in a mirror" before you came down here?

  8. X-ray eyes would be useful, too...

  9. Ha! At least she is pretty well covered. I have a great photo of a young lady (from behind) that I saw at the rodeo, that I can't even post on this site.....or can I...hmmmm.

  10. Made me laugh. My husband's comment when our teenage daughter was going with us. "Would you please check and see what she is wearing?"

  11. Absolutely perfect choice for the letter X.
    I agree with you and this is a great capture.

  12. What a shot, Kate. Fashions come and go, and one wonders what she will think in a few years to see this. She certainly wears it better than the "WalMart people" seen in emails!

  13. Times change and I try so hard not to be "OLD"! I have myself some young friends on Facebook. I think it helps. But it is just all so WRONG!!

  14. I think she was going for the look! In live in NYC and sometimes what I see...ugh (makes me feel old and often offended).

    ReplyDelete
  15. Hilarious take on the letter X!

  16. Had to laugh. When my teenager was at home. My husband would always say"Please go she what she is putting on" especially if she was going with us!

    ReplyDelete
  17. T for tame! Compared to what I saw at Wal Mart this morning!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Nah, it "fashion". (Feh.)

  19. I agree with Dave.

    Uh, great capture if you separate it from the "fashion statement."

  20. aw gawd don't get me started on this topic :)

    great post for this week's letter.

  21. Great shot, Kate, made me laugh!!

  22. It took me all morning to find an X and I'd almost given up before finding 2 - your own observance is most acute.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I dunno, it doesn't look too bad considering some I've seen. And I also remember that when I was about 13-14 and living in Los Angeles, we had our hair cut with duck-tails and we wore Levis quite far down our derrieres! That was cool, man! It was also a long, long time ago.

    Re your comment on The Villages: That great-grandmother is my wife of 55 years (as of Friday)...She looks pretty good I think - and from every direction, too!

  24. I have seen this so often I didn't understand what you were talking about for a while.

  25. MiXed opinions here. New generation, new fashion.

  26. Looks uncomfortable.

  27. I'm old, old-fashioned and I'd like to say offended but then they'd say I wasn't tolerant. I'm definitely not shocked.

    Do kids really think that the only part of themselves worth flaunting is their backsides?

    Is this the result of spending all these years telling them they are lovable and capable and falling over ourselves trying to boost their self esteem?

    I'm so glad my kids are well past being teenagers.

  29. Good lord, can't this child FEEL the cotton filling her butt crack? It's as offensive as seeing "coin slots" of bent-over repairmen whose jeans are too tight...!

    Not a prude, just wondering why this kid doesn't take a moment to "free herself"! Cute pic, and I found you at ABC. Peace, Amy Barlow Liberatore

  30. Hi again, Kate. I wanted to respond to your comment on Cedar Key. It has become very difficult to get flood insurance or hurricane insurance or any kind of insurance if you live on Florida's coastal areas. Many companies have stopped writing such insurance. And if you find one that will write it, the cost is prohibitive!

  31. Very funny, Kate! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  32. That's hilarious Kate, my first thought was 'munch, munch' hahahha!

  33. I'm recently retired from teaching high school students, so that photo gave me a good laugh. Thanks!

  34. Hello.
    I work with a lot of youngsters and this is quite tame for some of the sights I've seen. Guess this one forgot to check the rear-view mirror or she's never heard of spanx! LOL
    Thanks for sharing.

  35. You bet! Makes one wonder if these people have lights in their closets or mirrors in their rooms. :-)

  36. Reminds me of that adorable commercial where the teenage girl comes down the steps dressed for school and her Dad makes her go back upstairs to change about 5 times. She does look dischoveled, but then again my hubby sported a duck-tail haircut in the 1950's.
