If you know how denim skirts and safety pins go together, you may have been a fundamentalist.
Ooh! Ooh! *raises hand* Are they for pinning the slit together?
Good girl. Of course, a REAL godly woman wouldn’t buy a skirt with a slit in the first place. But safety pins are a must-carry for fixing up teenagers and newcomers.
Hahahahahahaha!!! Too true! And for the long skirts with the slits in the back.
I had to think about it for a while. This is because I am not and have never been a fundamentalist.
I think I’ve been around you guys too much because I knew it instantly XP
i would pin it in the middle to make pants so i could ride my horse!!!!
For some reason, now I’m wanting more ‘funny pictures’ like this from ex-fundamentalists. Or maybe for someone to do a stand-up routine, sort of like Jeff Foxworthy.
Hmm, at first glance I wondered why there wasn’t a needle and thread included. Certainly most of the girls I knew who wore skirts all the time knew how to sew, and definitely altered the clothes they bought often!
