A goth! A goth!

That's what TLM cried out, pointing to the trio of punks walking their labrador to the supermarket. She's been learning words at a scary rate, but I couldn't figure out where she'd heard the word "goth". And besides, they were punks - goths wear mostly black clothes and makeup, punks wear mostly tartans and safety pins - its important to get your subcultures right.

But anyway, it turned out I'd misheard TLM. She was talking about the dog.

You know, I never understood the punk fascination with plaid pants and punks and my school, way back when, had some fantastic plaid wearing punks in it.
Not me though, never tried it. (yet)

I'd rather be a goth. Black is way more slimming than tartan :-)
