I've been hearing a couple of new descriptive phrases lately that, quite frankly, have me stumped. Maybe Kathleen can clue me in, since she's one of the youngest members of my blog family.
First, what in the heck are "boyfriend pants"? I first started hearing the term "boyfriend jeans", but now that obnoxious "Anything you can do I can do better" GAP commercial is advertising "boyfriend trousers". Are the female youth of America (and the world) actually being taken in, to buy pants for themselves because they are given the name "boyfriend trousers"? Wouldn't it be easier (and cheaper) to buy your pants in the men's department? It's equivalent to the designers cutting off the bottom third of a pair of pants, jacking up the price and giving them the fancy name "Capri"!!
Second, what's the deal with stuff being called "cowboy"? For example, the bakery at my grocery store offers "cowboy cookies". Now I see that one of the national pizza chains is advertising "cowboy pizzas" too. I 've watched A LOT of westerns in my lifetime, and never once do I recall the cook in John Wayne movies presenting the cowhands with pizza, or cookies for that matter. And Little Joe Cartwright never requested any such thing from Hop Sing either.
Help me out someone!!!
