Today’s Burning Question


Would it be too geeky/twee/excessive to have JZ wear a Beatles shirt to travel if Madalyn is already wearing her John Lennon shirt?
I’m just trying to sort out what everyone’s wearing on the plane next week. I like them to look cute and put-together but I don’t necessarily want them in their really nice going-out clothes, plus I don’t like them to wear anything light-colored because they always manage to either spill their drink or smear snack crumbs on themselves at least once during the course of the trip. JZ’s Yellow Submarine shirt would be perfect because it’s tie-dyed bright colors so it would conceal a multitude of errors. The shirts aren’t what I’d call “cute” but it ratchets up their hipness factor and that is an acceptable substitute.
So, what do you think?
(And, yes, this is the kind of stuff I spend time thinking about. Unsettling glimpse into how my mind works, hmm?)

I'm a native Californian who lives in Oklahoma. I'm a full-time student, pursuing a Bachelors in Anthropology, following which I hope to attain a Masters in Archaeology. I have three kids, one husband, no pets, and a lot of friends - most of whom live inside my computer. I love to read, write, watch tv (shut up, we can't all be brain surgeons), shop, and travel. I'm trying to set foot in all 50 states before I die. I have 38, so far. I love the Beatles and Maroon 5, and if you think those two things are incongruous, well, they are. But that's me. When I love something, I love it 100%. I don't do anything halfway. I want to know everything there is to know, so I'm trying to cram as much into my brain as I can in the short amount of time I'm allotted in this dimension.

  1. My 2 cents: I personally think it should be one child, one Beatles shirt. There’s something that seems it would be a bit geeky/off about having two of the three wearing them. I’m not saying it’s “wrong”, or that there’s anything “wrong” with it…but your instincts are correct, in my opinion. I can’t really put it into descriptive words…but I agree with your line of thinking.
    But then again, if you think too hard or too much about it, you conclude, “What’s the big deal?”…
    If I were in the airport or on the plane, I personally wouldn’t care. Who cares how Crazy Mom dresses her brats? 2 seconds of eye contact ridicule and it’s over. Now I’m stressing out over what they should wear. Good thing I don’t have kids!
