Dave: So you're in the seventh grade, right?
Beth: And my parents decide I should go to a private school. So I got the whole uniform. You know, the plaid skirt and the white tights. so I show up at school on the first day and I'm the only person wearing a uniform. Turns out this particular school does not require uniforms, so everyone's laughing at me.
Dave: Oh god, please stop.
Beth: And I just wanted to cry, you know. But I didn't, I just went right along with them and laughed like it was some big joke, you know. And then the next day I wore the uniform, and that became my "thing". "The girl who wears the wacky outfits". Ha ha ha!
Dave: Which you continue to do to this day.
Beth: Yes Dave, because once you start you can't stop, or people will think you're chickening out. Of course, then nineteen years go by and you're a full grown woman who dresses like a... Oh my god I don't even know what the hell I'm supposed to look like anymore. I mean, you know?
Dave: Thanks, that was uplifting.
Beth: Tell the kids, Dave. Conform. Don't stick out. Fit in. Go along with the crowd, okay. No one should have to end up like this, Dave.
