Mirror mirror on the wall, who’s the prettiest of ‘em all?
When I was a kid, for almost all special occasions I was made to wear
this hideous pom-pom style ribbon pinned firmly to my hair. I hated the
look wholeheartedly, but unfortunately my mum loved it as she did love
everything ‘girly’. As at the time this sort of ruched ribbon pinned
right on top of one’s head was considered a real highlight of style or
something,so she insisted on me ‘joining the club’. I hated those
hideous things so much, that once in a while (or like every time I wore
them) I’d attempt ‘lose’ or ruin those pom-poms for good, only for them
to come back on me with a vengeance again and again and again.
Luckily this hideous look went out of fashion, and ribbons were no more.
