things i think about

why do so many Dallasites insist upon calling Highland Park Village "HPV"?


i mean, i realize they have a Chanel store and all, but just because you're shopping with the uppercrust doesn't excuse you from ignoring the obvious venereal disease acronym connection.

  4. Living in HP is kind of like a virus. And it seems that not unlike HPV, you can't really get rid of it.

  9. Not going to lie, I am one of 'those people' that calls it HPV! It is SO much easier to refer to it that way in texts and I am one that abriviates a lot of things anyway so it just works!
