If you are having troubles with the "tights are not pants" concept

Here is the rule:

If the top you are wearing could be mistaken for a mini-dress WHILE ON YOUR BODY, tights = ok as emergency ass-cover.

If the top you are wearing can not be in any way construed as a mini-dress and is mostly a long top WHILE ON YOUR BODY, tights = unacceptible.

I don't care if you borrowed your friend's tunic and it is plenty long on her, if you feel like you would have to take the tiniest steps in an enclosed, windless space in order for nobody to see your business in only the top, you should really put some pants on. If you could take long strides and maybe flash side-thigh action, but not really any butt cheek and definitely no cooter, tights or pants will do.

I promise I'm working on a better post. It's about handwriting. Get ready!

I've been saying this for two years now! I actually complimented someone on their "tights" to be corrected that they were pants. She *was* actually wearing a dress, but they were *not* pants. Pants have an inseam and are more cotton than nylon.

I could not agree more! I might even find a marketing angle on so I also can write about this, because it is so true! I look forward to your post about handwriting, it feels like I might have a thing or two to learn about that.
