This look is a departure from my usual preppy tomboyish look, but here’s the deal: I had bronchitis, was coughing like an extra in “Outbreak” every two seconds, and could barely bother getting dressed. I was also freezing, so there was no way I was taking off the big, warm, worn-in sweatshirt – Hub’s, of course… I mean I like the Falcons and all, but to spend my own personal money on team gear… not so much* – I’d been huddled in all day. While I recognized that the hoodie itself was a stretch, I knew the accompanying paint-and-who-know-what-else-stained, stretched out sweatpants absolutely could not leave the house. Sickness is no excuse. I really need to throw those pants out…
* The first time or two that hub and I went to Falcons games, I just wore the team’s colors. I guess that didn’t fly because the next thing I knew, we were in the women’s section of the sporting goods store, and he was like, “You need a Falcons shirt.” Why is it that we never end up in Madewell or J Crew with him saying, “You need some of this stuff”? I’m just saying.
