All my life I’ve been watching my mom and my sister noticing their fabulous-ness and diva attitudes. During my observations I typically made notes to self, such as: I hope I can do that one day or I hope I’m never, ever caught doing that.
Anywho, one of the things that they both do is what I like to call The Classic Scarf Snap. As a child riding in the car with my mom in the winters (back when Ohio law allowed 10 year olds to ride shotgun) I nearly lost both eyes from her scarf-snapping. Halfway through the season I finally started asking her to be more careful of my delicate little face, but by then it was much too late. She couldn’t stop. She even occasionally laughed as I whimpered and rubbed cotton and cashmere lint balls out of my eyes.
During a recent girls outing I witnessed my sister snap the end of her scarf right on top of some short bald guys head. He did a little brush and she never even knew what she had done.
All this leads me to ask one question: what’s so hard about guiding the scarf from one shoulder, around your neck and placing it on the opposite shoulder? Sheesh! Better yet, tie it.. But, if you must snap, PLEASE look around first.Friday's Girl
