10 blue jean baby
today, due to unprecedented thriftiness and a steadfast determination to wait out a demin defecit until the post-christmas sales, i am wearing jeans from 2001.
let's dwell on that a moment.
in 2001, i was 20. i had boy hair. it was brown.
9/11 had happened the month before. the ipod, the xbox and windows xp were released the month after. britney spears and jTim were dating. dakota fanning was 7.
we were at war with no one when i bought these jeans.
so on the one hand, these jeans make me feel outrageously old. but then, they also raise the question: do i seriously still have the body of a 20-year-old?!
