classy never trashy

Last week, I got a question: "Mrs. Hebert, what's the definition for classy?" (apparently some kind of language arts assignment... I get these questions a lot to be a science teacher. It makes for interesting times.)

At the time, I wasn't sure how to answer that (I am used to questions more like "What's the difference between a noun and a verb?" and "How do you spell Biology?"). When I think classy, my mind goes to one of our family friends, Coco Chanel, Jackie O, Lady Gaga (only kidding)... but when they think of classy, they're probably thinking more along the lines of (for real) Lady Gaga, Rihanna and Da Brat. The way we define it visually is just different, I'm sure.

But after this weekend I know EXACTLY what I should have said...

[klas-ee] - v. also see: mos' classiest
to (breast)feed your infant in the backseat of your car. In a Waffle House parking lot. In WINDER.

When the three month old chunky cuteness is screaming in hunger and no bottle or clean water is to be found... nothing looks more like a diamond in the rough than posting up for a few minutes with a hooter hider in a WaHo parking lot. Win.
