Today I borrowed one of Bradley’s sweaters to wear to the kids’ curriculum night. As if that isn’t enough that it actually fit, my husband’s (who can easily fit a child’s size xl) sweater was too big. TOO BIG! I couldn’t resist talking on and on about how I was wearing my husbands sweater so it just about falls off of me since its just SO big!
Ha ha!
I really wasn’t that much of a weirdo. Mostly those things were all said in my head as I traipsed around my living room, the sweater dropping off my shoulder and dangling down my arm. But I did talk about it to Bradley in that high-school-prom-sentimental kind of way that showed my husband what a big deal this is. He was appropriately admiring of me and understood the significance. Compliments followed while I swooned under his gaze. While wearing his sweater. His big, giant, too-sloppy, sleeves-hang-past-my-fingertips sweater. I would take a picture but I’ve already taken off my bra for the night. I love my readership, but not enough to put it back on for one picture of me in this humongous, gargantuan sweater. (Maybe a little carried away?)
Instead, I’ll placate you with ‘The Sweater’ song (not the one by Weezer). Really. I’m not kidding. Click the link down there!
Remember this song? I’m kinda feeling it. A sample of the lyrics follow…
(lyrics are spoken)
I know you will understand this
and feel the intrinsic incredible emotion
You have just pulled over your head the worn,
warm sweater belonging to a boy
Now, you haven’t had a passionate kissing session or anything,
but you got to go on a camping trip with him
and eight other people from school
And you practically slept together,
your sleeping bag right next to his
And you woke in the night to watch him as he slept
but you couldn’t see anything ’cause it was dark
so you just laid there and listened to his breathing
and wondered if your heart might burst
The sweater has that faintly goat-like smell
which all teenage boys…
Just watch the video. 🙂
