Is the choice really that hard? Everyone's got a price!
Made this caption the other day for Ashlee (Totalditz) on the Haven. It really is much more expensive to be a girl than a teenage boy. Couple pairs of jeans, couple pairs of T shirts, a week's worth of underwear and socks, and a pair of sneakers and you are good to go! Its no wonder they spend most of their allowance on video games, junk food, and video games.
So with that in mind, I had the idea for this caption brewing in my head for awhile, but really hadn't pulled the trigger until I found this picture. It really had everything I needed to whip it up finally and some time to get it just right. Something about the model told me that this was the threshold from being a tomboy to really starting to embrace the femininity that was trying to work its way out.
I also wanted to get the logic right as you wouldn't think that most boys would go along with it unless there was an ulterior motive .. money and lots of access to pretty girls would do it I think .. and then once he was in, he had to be committed to keeping up with it, no matter what. I'm sure from time to time the mom had to keep after her, but I'm sure Mommy was up for the challenge considering the devious idea in the first place!
It really is a fallacy that women aren't competitive, its that they don't think most of what boys fight over is worth it. I can imagine that the pecking order of any set of girls is in the realm of the whole "Game of Thrones" social skullduggery. Hell, I've seen it between my daughter and those you'd think were her best friends. So how do you rise throughout the ranks? By being the most girl you can be .. and underwhelming in the boob area can definitely keep you on the outside looking in. Another area would be having a really cool (and older?) boyfriend so it looks like Ashlee is looking for that boost, though maybe she doesn't quite realize it yet!
Hope everyone had a great weekend. I didn't accomplish quite as much as I wanted, but it was a very ambitious list I had set up for us. We even did a bit of karaoke with my daughter after she got out of work (another new job!) before heading home tonight. I am planning on doing some more captioning this week, with some photos already in a caption setting, and I have a number of half completed work ready to be pondered over and posted too.
