1.  Do your kids go to school on the last day of school?

2.  Do you throw (or let them throw) an end of year party for their friends?

3.  How many *graduation ceremonies* will/have your children experienced in their life time?

Maybe it's more personal taste and how much money you have to spend. Neither my son nor I will pay the $$$ that it costs to wear Ralph Lauren polis bought new, although my husband has one I found for 5.00 at a yard sale, brand new with tags.

Both of my boys were Polo, Ralph Lauren but it's usually purchased in the outlet malls for a fraction of the cost of an actual mall.  I really don't shop much in what would consider a traditional mall anymore, here and there but usually outlet and/or stand alone stores and the web.  I think I could sum up my kids clothes in four words:  sporting, school (high school/college), uniform and polo.  Of course the school clothes are also attached to sporting, lol.

"Wow. Didn't even know they were still around. At least I know the stores haven't been in the malls since I was in high school." -------------- LOL, ok, but in Europe Benetton is still all over.

I saw one recently when traveling....trying to remember where I saw it.  I think either Florida or Chicago.

I thought you traveled a lot, spoke to a lot of people and so forth...even I have seen Benetton stores since high school.  :)

I do...both ends and everyone in between.  I thought you claimed to have such wide and vast experiences, but it keeps getting smaller and smaller.

You aren't friends with 18 year olds (by your own words) so how on earth would you know and wow, what a judgement there springy.

" A friend is someone you usually spend a lot of time with" Do you have a source for that definition?

At one point in a debate, I was told that I couldn't possibly cook dinner as much as I didn't because I have 2-3 social things a week, while that poster only had 1-2 a month....I wonder if the definition will now include a double standard?

You don't have your own definition, you have to use someone else's?
