“Our enemies are innovative and resourceful, and so are we. They never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people, and neither do we.”
George W. Bush, August 5, 2004
In less than 12 hours, an article of clothing in our household will become instantly outmoded.
I’m talking about you, little “I already know more than the president” onesie. Yes, Phoebe wore you proudly, back when she was small enough. And sure, you would still fit Theo, size-wise. But your message, so sadly and humorously apt for far too long, will no longer be appropriate. And that deserves a celebration of extraordinary magnitude.
To send off this once-stylish article of clothing in style, I thought I’d post a few pictures from a photo shoot it had with Phoebe, back in 2006.
Photographer: Hey, Phoebe, what’s that you’re wearing?
Phoebe: You mean this?
Photographer: You look fabulous, dahling. Now, strike a pose.
Photographer: Work it baby, work it. Now show me the pout.
And by the way, anyone have any suggestions about what to do with this onesie?
