I just learned a new trick, well, at least new for me, regarding zippers from my friend Malinda. Malinda and I have been best friends for 20 years—she was the maid of honor at my wedding and the only person I know daring enough to have a conversation with the Falun Gong folks wearing a Vivienne Tam Chairman Mao shirt.
So when she headed for my crotch and zipped up my pants, I wasn’t offended. In fact, when she showed me that pulling the little zipper handle down locks the zipper in place, thus reducing the likelihood for future crotch treks on my behalf, I was elated. Not only are my goodies covered, but I learned a new trick to share with my fashionista friends.
