So, you’re shopping for, say, a racy dress, and you want to make sure it’s not going to fall down. You wave your arms around in the air, you slouch over, you twist around, you contort, and your friend says, “Well, yeah, when you do THAT it looks weird, but you’re not GOING to do that, because you NEVER do that,” and you think, “Oh, that’s right, because I’m not Elaine from Seinfeld,” so you buy it.
Unfortunately, I’m guessing Carina Lau’s friends never thought to say, “Yes, it looks weird, but you’re not GOING to balance on one leg and go full starfish with the other one while there are photographers training their lenses on your ladybeach. Right?”
But some of the fault lies with Carina here:
I mean, you Get-A-Grip friend can warn you against the Janky Rockette stance all she likes, but she’s never going to think to say, “Well, hang on, are they airlifting you to the event, and then wheeling you around like Hannibal Lecter?” Because unless you really do eat people’s kidneys and then floss your teeth with their colons, that sounds like a dumb question.
