A Sixties State of Mind

Thanks very much to S, who shared this with me.

If you want more of that creepy sixties state of mind, watch the new TV show Mad Men ... a look back at the man in the gray flannel suit, circa 1961.

And exhale sharply, grateful that we aren't still living that life...

Wearing our burkhas with high heels.

I am soooo thankful.
As a child of the 70s I was raised by a woman who would have given the same answer as the woman in the cartoon.

"Wearing our burkhas with high heels." Mireille, you've got it there, even though I think we two might take that sentence in two different ways, you've just hit the nail there. :)

This looks to me more like the Fifties than the Sixties (that wireless is positively ancient).

Love it. :-)

Oh, and I agree with Ariel. "Wearing our burkhas with high heels" is one sharp sentence. fragment.
