Saga of the Fat Sweater, by joans-zone

Saga of the Fat Sweater

I met a man last week, a

potential amour, we had

talked, shared our love of

music, discussed our nations

political divide–so simpatico, I

thought, but what

possessed me to wear that

bulky green sweater? I wanted my

eyes to pop, and it was

bitterly cold, I had expected to

remove it, showing off a more

form-fitting top, but that didn’t

happen. Yesterday morning, I am

pleased to see a message from

simpatico, I find instead, an

accusation, a statement that I

have deceived him, and he is

blowing me off. In wearing my

cuddly emerald sweater, I had

apparently attempted to

conceal my bulk, which

seemed to him to be

substantial, so, that’s

correct, my wardrobe

choice had outed me. I was

upset, floored, made some

defensive moves, too little, too

late. I admit I am not

svelte, but I do work on

being fit. It has

taken a day, I feel better,

thinking the fat sweater

saved me,

rescued me from going

down that path to a relationship

doomed to fail. Next time,

with a potential mate, I will make

certain to take the sweater

off.
