I feel like I'm gonna spend 2k9 spending a lot more time trying to understand form/function so that I know how to better compartmentalize/stereotype/label different genres of products/people/ideas/nouns. Not sure if I'll ever 'get' the diff btwn leggings/panty hose/tights... I know that some are solid. & some are see-thru (but sometimes that happens when ur fat and u wear leggings). and some are '2 keep u warm.'

Can some of yall 'single ladies' help me out? [via that Beyonce song]

trying
2
'get'
the world
'around me.'
