Hello Black Velour Sweatsuit!
Boy, have I missed you.
I can't believe it is time to bring you out again, but the leaves are falling and the time is here.
You should know I love you because I never pack you in the basement and keep you hanging in the closet.
Just in case it gets cold in the summer...
I know you might be upset with me for separating you- hooded zippered sweatshirt by the door and pants hanging- but at least, part of you was used this summer on those cold nights.
I appreciate you for so many reasons.
Thanks for always looking black when I fade all other laundry.
Thanks for not shrinking- must be your beautiful combination skin of poly and cotton.
And thanks for always fitting whether I am a size 2(HA) or 20.
I will never get rid of you my faithful friend.
I know you must be thinking, "yeah sure, that must be what she said to the burgundy velour she threw out last year".
I promise you the burgundy could never compare to you- her coloring too off, her blend- not quite right and she just wasn't gonna make it.
But you, I wear you so much during the week and you keep on going.
Sometimes 2 days in a row.
Thanks for allowing me to wear you to a Wednesday night or morning prayer at church and hold my head high even though I was not wearing slacks or a skirt.
Thanks for having pull strings that have not fallen into the holes and are always at the ready.
You look cute with sandals or sneakers or my wanna be Uggs from Kmart.
I can even spill stuff on you and the chance of anyone seeing it is slim.
So, in closing, thank you for your years of service. You are truly a steal at under $15 a piece from Sams.
And your Calvin Klein label makes me feel so special.
I am looking forward to the long winter ahead.
