what do you know? (day 23)

my cousin always greets me with, “what do you know?” i never know what to say to that. do i spout off a random fact? ms. frizzle is the teacher of the magic school bus. prince william’s last name is ‘wales.’ troy’s favorite meal is mac and cheese and fish sticks.

normally i stammer and say, “um…uh…hi.” every time, people. i know, i’m smooth.

but if he were to ask me today, i’d be ready.

so let’s pretend, ok? you be him.

you: “what do you know, caitlin?”

me: i know one thing: i am ready to have more than 11 options to pick from when i get dressed in the morning!

    My grandfather always said that…haven’t heard it in forever.
    Love that white.

      Aww. That makes me miss my grandpas. Thanks for sharing :)

    Glad I’m not the only awkward one! People always throw me off because they say “What’s up?” and I say :”FINE!” Or “How are you?” “Oh, nothing!” Perhaps I need to hone my listening skills?

    • Caitlin August 14, 2012 at 4:22 PM

      Andi, I literally lol’d. Maybe listening skills is it. I wonder if I started asking obscure things like “What’s in your left shoe?” or “Did you see the orangutang on the street?” if I would confuse people or if they would even notice? …hmmm….

    I’m a huge fan of white on white – and I can’t believe you found such a lovely top thrifted! The necklace is a great detail. Love it all!

    Love the outfit! Is it pale pink or white? Can’t quite tell. ;)

    We lived in the New Orleans area for a while and there is nothing quite like having a perfect stranger greet you by saying ‘Where y’at!” ….. Ummmm… right here in front of you. Apparently that this their way of saying ‘hi!’ ;)

    I have a statement necklace giveaway going right now, come check it out! CC’s Cheap Chic

    • Caitlin August 16, 2012 at 7:34 AM

      Thanks so much, CC! It’s white. :)

      Lol. That’s hilarious. I’ll have to tuck that knowledge away for if I ever visit New Orleans.

      Thanks for the invite! I’m definitely headed to check it out! Have a great day!
