The Saturday Sweater
I have a hideous sweater that I actually wore in public before I realized how hideous it was. (To be fair, my wife never pointed out the fact that it was hideous until I had already worn it out for over a year.) It’s striped. For some reason I always think I will look good in striped shirts – but most of the time I do not. In fact, I had one short sleeved striped shirt that my wife affectionately came to call my “kindergarten shirt”, as I apparently looked like a kindergartener in it. I guess there are worse things to look like, but when I cleaned the closet a month ago, I ended up throwing it away.
Back to the point – I live in the northern US, so there is a need for one to own lots of sweaters. I do, and some of them are downright ugly. I have my “grandma sweater” that makes me look 90, but it is oh so warm! I also have my “tent sweater” which literally could double as a two person tent, that’s how big it is! Why I got such a big sweater, I have no idea – but it is comfy. And then I have my “Saturday sweater” which is the striped sweater I mentioned earlier. Why is it called the Saturday sweater you may ask? Because apparently I wear it a lot on Saturdays. And my wife is a dick 😉 (Just kidding honey!)
Okay, let me defend my choice in Saturday-wear. It’s comfortable, always available, and rarely wrinkles, so it’s quick and easy. When I am lounging around the house, it’s my favorite choice – other than my big purple sweatshirt 🙂 I never proclaimed to be a fashionista! I go for comfort, but I do think I have a nice style other than my choice of sweaters.
Without further ado, I give you the Saturday Sweater:
Confession: I actually have 2 of these sweaters in different colors.
So what about you? What kind of ugly/comfy clothes do you own?
