You don’t think fads become trends quickly at times? And totally predominate?
While I was waiting for my latest Covid and flu shots, I watched a couple of dozen people lined up for prescriptions and to pay for pharmacy products. Every one of them had on some kind of athletic shoe or trainer (what I once called “sneakers”). Every one, in age ranges of 20 to 80 easily.
At the salon I visit to get my hair cut, which has 98% female customers, I have the only vehicle of over 20 in the lot that is not an SUV. (And I do have an SUV in my garage.)
We are herd animals.
