Does This Make Me Look Pudgy?
My Ribbed Mohair Vest is not the most flattering on my body type and reminds me of a conversation I had with nona-nephew several years ago. Let me set the stage. I had just finished a form fitting ribbed turtleneck. I was happy with the results and envisioned myself looking quite hip -- okay, okay hip might be too much to ask for, how about sporty? Anyway, I slipped the turtleneck over my head and ... oops a bit form fitting. Thus began a back-and-forth between nona and herself, "you look sporty, no pudgy, no sporty, no pudgy, ..." Stuck in an endless loop I ventured out to the family room to ask nona-sons and nona-nephew their opinions.
The conversation went something like this:
nona to nona-sons: Does this sweater make me look pudgy?
nona-sons: No, it looks fine. It looks good.
nona to nona-nephew: Does this sweater make me look pudgy?
nona to herself: Hmm, maybe I need to rephrase the question since nona-nephew's mom is nona-sister the tall and skinny
nona to nona-nephew: Does this sweater make me look any pudgier than I normally look?
Needless to say, the turtle neck was sent off to one of the nona-nieces and nona learned that sometimes it's best not to ask.
