August 31 ~ A Letter to A Sweater
So sad to see you go. It does not seem it's been so many years - four, maybe five. I guess discount, economical brands don't last very long. Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying you were cheap (even though you were), but clearance priced at $3.98! Who could resist? Only wish you could have hung in there a little longer. You've fit me at my heaviest, warmed me whilst I was most ill. Remember those first, scary asthma attacks just last year? You kept me comfy cozy. Whenever I donned you you looked pretty darn great - especially paired with my favorite Lee Jeans. (What ever happened to those?) Who knew brown would look good on me? Crew neck at that! You did make me like what I saw in the mirror every single time I pulled you over my head. I wore you to nearly every choir concert for the past three years! That's quite a statement. I wonder if anyone ever noticed? Who cares. I noticed. I looked and felt good about myself with you on; perfect match to my raisin tinted Burt's Bees lip balm.
Thanks for the memories, you holey, pill covered softy. I hope, though never be able to replace you, that I will someday, perchance, glance a Target clearance rack, and behold a close second.
Goodbye, dearest brown sweater.
