Sorry Mom

Mother reading blog = bad news

Blogging about ugly sweater given as gift from mother = "You are getting nothing next year!"

And so...

Dear Enraged Mother,
The sweater is lovely, it really is. That is, until I flip it over. I'm touched that you would go out of your way to obtain such an exquisite article of clothing. The more I think about it the more I realize just how useful this sweater will be. I mean reinforced elbows? That's genius! You know how active I am, and I always find myself burning holes right through those darn sleeves. Now I can take up army crawling again, and never have to worry about my sweater wearing away and leaving my elbows unprotected and subject to nasty rug burns. Thanks mom! And yesterday when I tried to locate a picture of this sweater, I realized just how impossible it is to find. Old Navy doesn't even have it on their website and it's their sweater! You must have traveled far for this Christmas Gem! I had no idea it was such a hot commodity. And finally, compared to the Christmas Gem you gave Aimee last year (bathrobe made for clown), I am very grateful that mine is still wearable in public.
Love,
Bridget

Ha, like you'd even want to start paying for the gas on that.

Bridget....one word... CONFESSION.

I don't think you've taken a look at your elbows. I mean they are very pointy...rather boney like. Actually, many would say - unnaturally pointy. So, your mom has done you a favor. Your freakish pointy elbows won't poke holes in this dainty woven sweater.

Bridget, you never cease to make me laugh. Not at your elbows, the post of course.

oh god. you know those blazers that were relly popular in the 80s with the attractive elbow patches? you got the ugly sweater version of those. I laughed until i cried when i saw your sweather. Not only are the patches stylish and protective, i really admire the designers decision to mix such different fabrics and colors. its really innovative...the knitted gray sweater and the brown pleather looking patches.

you're clearly jealous

At least the point was never conceded in this post that the sweater wasn't the best aesthetic choice given the possible selection available.
