I was driving home from swimming lessons today when I noticed a woman (notice I said "woman" not "girl") pushing stroller and walking with another child. Not remarkable in itself; what caught my eye was her trackpants with "Precious" on the rear-end. "Precious?" Come on. So I have a new pet-peeve. Pants with a word on the ass. I've seen "Sweet" and "Princess" too. I wonder if this outfit is meant as a statement? What kind of statement, you ask? I'm thinking maybe a sad grasp at youth. Or possibly advertising the potential for bill-board work on a walking mommy -- you know like 18-wheelers do. Then I ask myself, if I was going to send a one-word "ass message" I wonder what it would be?
