Sunday 160 - Good Sweater / Bad Sweater


With an image of garish colors
glaring at him,
he wondered,
"Why aren’t we like our northern neighbors
where sweaters are hockey jerseys,
even if they’re pink?”

Because we don't appreciate the sport the same way here, which is criminal.

My 160 is over here.

You could always put a name and number on that sweater and then drop the gloves A LOT.

I love the sweater .. bought a few of those for my sons way back when ..
Great 160!!

Autumnforest said...

It still beats a cardigan. Somehow, men in cardigans just make me think of Mr. Rogers and it's kind of creepy.

Steve Isaak said...

Pain-inflicting picture, good versifying.

Here's mine.

Olivia said...

The sweater is so horrible that I can't look away, like a bad accident on the roadway.

But if you like it, that's all that counts.

My 160 is here

That was a good one, and you're right, only I would get it. You're lucky! I stayed up for hours last night trying to think up a clever, yet embarrassing retort...you're also lucky that clever and me don't mesh well.
And that sweater is frightening.

well, everyone prefers individuality,

lovely sweater, it does not matter how others think.

here is My Sunday 160

This reminds me of my youngest child who kept losing his jackets and sweaters at school until the multicolored sweater he didn't like went to school with him. He left it there on purpose, one day. The next day, I stopped at the office to look into the piles of sweaters in the lost and found bin and found it instantly.
