Tom and I went out to meet our friend Lucy for a drink last night. Lucy is 25 years old and the daughter of our north-country Wellington friends, but she has been living in Portland for the past couple of years, and she can solve many mysteries for me, such as, Is the Bubba who owns Bubba's Sulky Lounge a real person? Plus, I have known her since she was three and I love her.
Anyway, it was really cold last night, so naturally, since we were walking to the bar, I dressed for the weather. But the first thing Lucy said when she saw me was "OH MY GOD, YOU'RE WEARING SNOWPANTS! THAT IS SO CENTRAL MAINE!" And then all three of us laughed and laughed and laughed. Because of course: wearing snowpants to a city bar on Saturday night is really funny. I should note, however, that I was also wearing earrings and make-up. So I wasn't completely Central Maine.
