There is an integral part of clothing that guys seem to have in abundance but that is decidedly missing in many articles of clothing for girls. This is so completely unfair that I think it is time to take a stand. No longer should girls be forced to carry around bags or purses - we want pockets.
Yes. POCKETS. You know, those little sacks inside pants and very few skirts in which to store small items like, say, a cell phone?
The desire for pockets goes way back to the times of Peter Pan, who says:
"Oh what pleasure
She'll bring to us
Make us pockets and sing to us"
But should only boys have pockets? Girls are there to sew them for boys?
Nuh uh. No way. I don't think so.
Things have gotten so bad that the following conversation actually took place this afternoon:
SJ: Purses are so annoying.
Erachet: Yeah. I think we should all advocate for pockets!
Madd Hatter: [completely and utterly serious] Pockets? What are those?
[SJ and I give her a look of astonishment]
Madd Hatter: [slightly confused at the way we are looking at her] No, really! They sound like something I would like!
You heard that right, folks. Us girls are even forgetting what pockets even are! We've got to demand them before it's too late!
WE WANT POCKETS!
