You guys! I just realized something:
While Lilo was running around driving her car into things, having her passport “stolen,” kicking around in jail, and blaming everyone else for all her problems, maybe she LITERALLY didn’t get the memo about the whole Leggings Are Not Pants thing. Because, you know, we couldn’t FIND her. Was she in jail? Was she speeding down PCH? Was she in the South of France pretending she wasn’t thinking about just staying there forever? HOW ARE WE SUPPOSED TO KNOW? This explains so much. I actually feel better.
