Laverne and Shirley ruined letters as accessories for me since my name starts with an "L". Anytime I think about wearing a single monogram letter, pins with my first initial or letter necklaces, the big "L" Laverne wore on all her clothes pops through my mind and I can't do it.
My sweatshirt yesterday needed something and I was drawing a blank with all my necklaces, so I pulled out the one initial piece I own. It's been over thirty years since that show was popular and I thought surely people have forgotten about the big "L"s on Laverne's clothes. I was wrong. Dave walked by, looked at me and said, "Are you channeling Laverne?
Are you freaking kidding me? I told him that he was mean and feeding into my letter insecurities. I still wore the brooch all day, but I was more self conscious. Thanks babe. Thanks a bunch.
