In response to the Daily Word prompt ‘Controversy‘
I’m not the anorak type, but I do own one and occasionally I wear trainers. I’m more of the smart coat type, the type that never leaves the house withoutmakeup, though when I say never, I’m omitting the occasional lapses.
The conversation went something like this…
The son: Are you going out like that?
Me: Like what?
The Son: Wearing trainers
Me What’s wrong with my trainers?
The Son: Nothing, it’s what you’re wearing with them
Me: My trousers? I think they look okay with trainers.
The Son: I’m not talking about your trousers, it’s your coat.
Me: My coat? There’s nothing wrong with my coat it’s very smart.
The Son: Yes it is very smart and that’s why you shouldn’t wear it with trainers!
Obviously, today was a lack of concentration day, a one off. I wore clothes suitable to help the son clean his apartment (how kind of me), I was wearing makeup and my hair was impressively shiny. What can I say, I simply picked up the wrong coat.
