If You Want To Destroy My Sweater

The Sweater

We all have our vices. For some, it’s smoking or gambling. Even children may have a special blankie or stuffed animal that they can’t live without. Maybe your thing is a nightly glass of scotch. Not to worry, there’s no judgement here. I was actually unaware of my unhealthy obsession until a friend pointed it out to me the other day. My “thing”, as it turns out, is my obscure decision to continually wear the same argyle sweater anytime I am heading out to an event, or family function, or grocery shopping, or to get the mail, or to work, or…you get the point.

The truth is, I have no idea why I was gravitating to that particular sweater but I’m guessing it has something to do with my recent weight loss. You see, there isn’t a lot of nice clothes out there for us short and rounds, so I had been getting by on heavy sweaters and button up shirts that were way too big. When I recently reached the stage where I could fit into a nice piece of clothing such as the aforementioned argyle sweater, I guess my brain when in to shock and kept leading me towards it at every turn.

I really had no idea how bad it had gotten until the third person mentioned it, which then led me to take a peek at my recent photo albums…

Who could forget the sweater’s appearance at Blissdom Canada??

That is only half of the pictures I had to choose from. In other news, the sweater in question has now been sent on a short vacation while I investigate my closet for other items…
