     My 82-year-old mom, who has dementia decided to buy herself some jeans (with rhinestones on the back pockets, no less). She called me afterwards and told me to come get them because she didn't like the way they fit. When I asked her why she bought jeans in the first place, she said, "Well, all you young girls are wearing them." I'll be 60 this year...and I never wear rhinestones on my behind..
