I really am not a fashion-obsessed person, so I hesitate to bring up a clothing topic for the second day in a row, but here it goes.
I know Sunnydale is the hellmouth which can cause unusual chaos at the high school, but I don’t understand how Buffy is allowed to go to school every day dressed inappropriately. Yesterday she had on a lace shirt, no liner, with a black bra. So, basically, she donned her bra and not one adult reprimanded her. Wait, that’s not completely true… Giles reprimanded her, but that was about doing her homework, not about inappropriate attire.
Today she has on a low-cut, see-through white t-shirt. So, basically, she donned her bra and not one adult reprimanded her – again.
She often bears her midriff. Wouldn’t fighting vampires and demons be more comfortable in a full-length shirt? Doesn’t she worry that as she maneuvers, her shirt is going to rise higher and she will expose herself? I guess when you’re trying to save the world, you can’t fixate on these trivialities. But, come on, I bowl and when I’m going bowling, I think about what would be most comfortable. I imagine that if I were killing vampires instead of bowling, I would still take that moment to consider what’s most comfortable.
Perhaps I’ve turned into my grandfather. Or re-watched Buffy the Vampire Slayer too many times. (It’s my background noise about once a year during big projects.) Or am avoiding the work, NB renewal, exercise, and cleaning that I have to do.
I may not be improving my writing craft, but I have just about perfected my procrastination strategies.
