On a separate topic, we went to Ocean City, Maryland recently for a little family vacay. One of the reasons I love OCMD is because it's so fabulously tacky. I am regularly appalled by some of the things that people wear on the boardwalk, but I also love it because it's refreshing (in some strange way) to see such a lack of concern for good taste and decorum.
It clearly influenced Beezus as well. When we came back, she started trying to dress differently, including wearing shorts that are NOT appropriate for wearing outside the house and were purchased with the explicit understanding that they were only to be worn over leotards to gymnastics camp.
