As I was strolling around the web looking at the changes that have occurred in the past 60+ years I pondered this photograph with it's perfectly coiffed women and their darling white aprons. Regretfully, if I had to do my hair like this daily, I would have a rat's nest up there. Not being the fashion plate for the latest trends, there are days when I am not sure how I came to create this blog. But then I digress, once again...
How'd they do that little flippy thing with their bangs? And what holds it in place. Then I wonder how did they keep those aprons so clean. Obviously, these were for show, right? For the record, I'd be the tallest one in the back with my hair just barely making the grade and hiding my coffee stained apron.

I am probably better transplanted into this photograph where women are running from the kitchen or their husbands or both. I think this is a race to see who can deliver their food in the pan the quickest. I hope the winner gets to eat first and maybe the looser should wash the dishes. I can run pretty fast so I'd take my chances in this picture, skillet and all.
Side note: I would bet a bezillion dollars that none of the ladies in the classic picture would ever be caught dead running like this with a frying pan unless being chased by an ax murderer.

Finally, here and now, these hip 20-somethings, wearing their skinny leg and boot cut jeans paired with the colorful-cool striped aprons, represents a real modern take on groups of women in aprons. They must be tossing the matching potholders in the air in celebration of the freedom that fashion and aprons now represent. Right? Tell me I am right on this one... or are they just posers shirking their responsibilities? I am thinking these modern gals are total gamers and could be placed in either of the above photos.

Regardless, I hope this pictorial left you amused or at least entertained for few moments in your day. And as always, wear your apron. (At least at some point in the day!)
