Manicured or could you care less what your yard looks like?

What kind of dresser are you - classy, trendy, bold or combination/no one particular style?

Cook in/grill out or go out on a scorching hot day?

You're right, boys clothes are cut differently than girls too.  Not rocket science nor does it refute my statement about a boyish figure.

You've actually said, in this very thread, that you only work for the money.

They didn't have either one of those in the mall that we were in.....we were in J Crew, Polo, Coach, and so on and so forth.  FYI, they don't have Lands End and LL Bean "stores" in my area. There are a couple of Sears that have LE as a department, but no stores for either...

You get worked up by the most interesting things...name tages to boys clothes being worn by someone other than a boy.

No, I wasn't talking about the pink sub-thread.  Your mind and others went elsewhere when it comes to the clothing line pink though,  I'm sure spencers and retailers like it appreciate your business.
