Went looking for a skirt today.
Asked the young (20?) year old salesgirl "Do you have skirts, for women, like me?"
She looked at me, she SAW my face, I could easily have been her mother, or aunt or even.....
So what did she show me?
I could not believe it.
Even my daughter wouldn't have worn it, maybe.
It was short.
So short that I thought, she has to be joking.
A jeans skirt.
Never, "No, questa no, per ME, hai capito, do you understand the skirt would be for ME".
I explained I would like to wear it daily, rather than a pair of pants.
She showed me another, a flimsy little SHORT skirt with some gathering....very short. No, this girl was not thinking. Would HER mother wear something like this?? I didn't ask. I was just confused.
No, I didn't get a skirt there.
But I did get something that I enjoyed.
