You saw gold and I saw clay
But you call me blind because all you saw was the flashes before your eyes.
I may be wrong but that doesn’t make you more right.
We live in a world where you either have to tow a line or stay in your seat If you decide to stand aside, you become like that hair that you always try to fix in your ponytail;it never lies down.
Everybody was shouting and basically rooting for their ‘teams’ in a lecture hall, as students of a Spanish literature class were waiting for their ‘profesora’ to arrive.And the reason for these shouts was not something you would think students who had a test the next day would argue about.Not forgetting that Profesora Nyra marked with iron hands.
It was simple. Was the wearing of crop tops (the bralette kind) appropriate for lectures or not? The battle lines were drawn and on one side stood the people who claimed that lecture halls were not runways where people could show their abs for fun.On the other side stood the in vogue people. Simply put,crop tops were the ‘in’ things and everyone should keep up with fashion evolution.
Now this argument was not one where one person just made a statement and a couple of people giggled. Far from that!
If it had been in the Victorian era swords would have been drawn
and blood shed if I am not exaggerating. In comes Beulah and Tricia. At this point both teams were desperate to get these two ladies to their side to seal their victory.
“As much as I think that there are appropriate clothing for every event and no one should be stuck in a fashion rut, the most important factor is feeling comfortable.If you feel comfortable to be seen in it, you should wear it”.
The whole class broke into laughter at Tricia’s comment as Beulah nodded in agreement with her. For them you had to belong to one group or the other.If not then you were not counted.
Our opinions are what makes the difference.You should not force someone to join a movement just because what he/she believes in has no category.Do not force people into boxes or cages.
OPINIONS ARE LIKE NOSES ; EVERYBODY HAS ONE!
Therefore, I beg to differ!
Is there anything that has you going ‘I BEG TO DIFFER’? Share your thoughts with me.
Till the next argument…Bye Darlings!
