You’ll never hear me saying, “Je ne regrette rien.” That’s French for “I regret nothing.” I regret all kinds of things! Like why I ate so much yesterday. And life decisions I made years ago.

Pet peeve: when people say, “I have no regrets,” as if having them is such a terrible thing.

But years passed, my style evolved, and during one particularly intense closet-cleaning rampage, I threw the kilt in a Goodwill bag, and never saw it again. This was a few years ago, and I still miss that damn skirt. It has joined my New Kids on the Block hoodie, vintage riding boots, and perfectly baggy v-neck sweater on my list of Clothes That Got Away.

Compared to 5% of men who claim they’ve been teased, it seems like the new glass ceiling is a bit more skintimate. Now, we can understand if a lady regrets an eBay auction where she sold a casino the right to tattoo their URL on her forehead, but overall, it’s disheartening that we can’t get our lower back tattooed without it being called a tramp stamp. Let’s unite and take back the lower back tat for classy women! You know if Paris Hilton doesn’t want a trendy tat, especially one inherently nicknamed for sluts, then they must only be for the supremely lady-like! [LA Times via Fark]
