( 8:27 AM ) teahouse
This weekend, I sat on the subway next to a woman with her two young kids.
Her daughter, who was 3 or 4, was asleep in her carriage, all in pink.
Her son, who stood next to her and looked to be no more than 7 or 8, was dressed to the nines.
I think he wanted to be Snoop Dog. He had braided hair, and wore a puffy jacket and low-hanging jeans.
All in miniature of course, since he was so young.
The best part of the ensemble was his jewelry.
His ears were pierced, and he was wearing large, gold earrings in the shape of dollar signs. Each was about the size of a quarter.
I wish I'd gotten a picture.
Like I said, no more than 8 years old. And he already knows the power of capitalism. #
