Um. I read somewhere recently that turtlenecks are “back.” I never realized that they left. That makes me and Steve Jobs… Beatnik-on-top- Jerry-Seinfeld-on-the-bottom Steve Jobs. Bless his heart.
Scarves and turtlenecks are essential as far as I’m concerned. Some people feel claustrophobic this way; I feel complete. A cold neck will not stand in my book.
If I were born 3 million years ago, I would’ve been the mother of the Turtle People Race. I would have retreated my head into my shoulders and stayed that way. I would have spawned many a neckless spawn (totally not how evolution works). I would have been second in importance only to Lucy. They probably would’ve named me Ethel for short. Formal name: Australopithecus missingnecksis.
My vision for myself is so clear when I put myself into ridiculous scenarios. Sigh.
