Dysfunctional Wardrobe

You know things in ye olde fashion department are getting pathetic when you discover, 30 minutes before you need to leave the house for a rare appearance at your book group, that your three pairs of capri pants are unwearable: Pair #1 is dirty, pair #2 features a risque rip along the seam all the way to the knee, and pair #3 is missing its crucial button. Not to worry, you think, just use a safety pin for pair #3.

Tiny problem: There is not one single safety pin in the house.

Fortunately, your babysitter (Hi, Mom!) is a functioning adult, unlike yourself apparently, and thus owns several safety pins.

Fashion disaster averted. Notes to self: 1) learn how to sew; 2) buy some safety pins, for heaven's sake; 3) maybe, just maybe, consider refreshing your wardrobe.
