I’m Scraping Here.

Written by sally @ 10:34 am — Section: Uncategorized

Today I am wearing a sweater vest. I mean, I’m wearing other things, too, but part of my ensemble is a yellow sweater vest. This is noteworthy because I haven’t worn a sweater vest since 1997, when I accidentally wore a red sweater vest with little white stitched Vs on it to teach in, and my students robustly pointed out that it was Valentine’s Day and I was wearing my Valentine’s Day sweater vest. Is there anything worse than a teacher who wears those awful holiday sweaters? I was one! Accidentally, but still. My high school boyfriend’s mother was a 4th grade teacher and had a closet full of those things. At least she did have the fancy, executive line with little dangling pumpkins and furry flags and all.

    My mother-in-law’s boyfriend has his “Christmas jumper” (he’s English) complete with reindeer on an old-timey street scene along the bottom hem. He’s worn it every December that I’ve known him. Cracks me up.
