I like that word. Marmish. It’s fun to say – but the definition makes me laugh. According to Urban Dictionary: Marmish (Adj) – Conservative to the point of being boring, dull or ugly; usually referring to a manner of dress and/or personality.
Anyway, I’m feeling particularly marmish today.
You see, I used to be quite cool.
Here’s me in one of my bridal portraits. Fearless, stylish, unabashed.
But now, I’m marmish.
Especially today. I’m wearing my hair in a tossled bun, 15 – ok, maybe 20 – extra pounds of baby weight (I’m working on it!), a hoodie and flip flops. Yes, I have a professional job, but I work in the creative department, so I get away with these sorts of things.
I am also feeling particularly offended by cable television shows, songs on top 40 radio and teenage fashion styles. I mean I literally had a distorted, disgusted look on my face while driving to work this morning listening to a popular hip hop song.
And I think I’ve told at least 2 people at work today to watch their language. In a lighthearted way, of course.
Anyway, I need to add some of that arm (check out my triceps on that picture!) to my marm, and maybe I could get some of my cool back. In the meantime, I’m going to go find some random teenager and tell him to pull up his pants.
