In this morning’s Starkville Daily News, my column was all about how to dress like a senior citizen.
I was furious when I picked up the paper just now and noticed that some well meaning editor (probably just out of high school) edited out all my references to “Spanx” and replaced each with the word “Spandex”.
Made me sound like I’d been living under a rock somewhere. To quote the original column before Spanx was changed to Spandex:
“I tossed out a teeny miniskirt that was barely a foot long! I figure it was left over from the Carter Administration which was a pretty tacky time. Take it from me, mini-skirts don’t mix well with Spanx. (If you don’t know about Spanx, I figure you must be a size two and under the age of 35.)”
See? Some teen-aged proof reader never heard of Spanx. But believe me, she will. Oh, yes, she will. Just give her a few more years of wolfing down Big Macs and chasing them with Coca-Colas. I will have my revenge!
Surely my regular readers are a familiar with Spanx – those wonderful new generation undergarments that make you instantly firm up and look like you just lost 10 pounds, and all with kid glove comfort!? So anyway, don’t bother to read my column – makes no sense.
