DSD: Hey, Mom, you still got any of those tacky Christmas sweaters?
DSD: You know those old Christmas sweaters you used to wear to school? Emily and I are going to a Tacky Christmas Sweater party, and I don't want to pay $40 for a new tacky sweater. You still got any?
(Note to readers: DSD is approximately 6'5" and I am approximately 5'7".
DSD: Okay, see what you can find and we can meet for lunch tomorrow.
#1, inherited from mother-in-law, sporting 80's shoulder pads, ribbons, and a stain on the sleeve: The Saggy Stained Sweater with Christmas Tree.
#2, featuring glittery beads, sequins and intarsia knitting, The Snowy Christmas Chapel.
#3, the truly tacky home-made Christmas vest. Not a sweater at all. Lined with coarse scratchy cheapo Wal-mart Christmas print. Very popular with elementary students back in my teaching days. Also actually worn as hostess of annual family Christmas potluck one year, probably also due to hot flashes.
Off to meet DSD and deliver the goods.
Challenge: What tacky Christmas sweaters do you have lurking in your closet?
