Taken from Leah McLaren's column in Globe and Mail newspaper on April 19. I can't figure out what she meant by 'skinny knees knocking over cherry Docs'. Can anyone tell me what it means?In highschool, I wore a fishnet stockings. It wasn't the fetish appeal I was after, but the imaginary punk rock street cred. I loved the image of myself shivering on the corner, ciggy between my knuckles, skinny knees knocking over cherry Docs, conjuring the streetcar.
I was 15. I was freezing. I was mistaken for a prostitute.
Oh and also, can I say "April 19th edition of Globe and Mail"? that's what I was going to write, but I felt that the word 'edition' was too big for daily newspaper - if it was monthly, the word 'edition' would have been a perfect fit. If the word 'edition' isn't a good word for a daily newspaper, what would be a good word?
I know what you mean about 'edition'. For a newspaper, use
April 19th copy of the Globe and Mail
We would use 'edition' as in 'the afternoon edition of the Sun', 'the weekend edition of the Herald'
