This image is important to show you what I am talking about. See I can wear it this month and I’ll tell you why. First more examples that might apply to you.
Remember that bling ring you bought you bought seven years ago? Or that rope you planned to wear as a belt for Western Day? There is also the furry purple boots you bought because they were marked 80% off. Good month for trying them out. Wear them in public during January. Critics will think you got them for a Christmas present, and feel an obligation to use their gifts.
So back to my hat. Listen carefully you might hear someone say, “Isn’t that sweet of that woman. Some grandchild probably gave her the hat. So dear of her to wear it.”
While I’m on the subject, wear the eye poppin’ one size fits all that your Aunt Azalia bought for you. Use good judgement, however. Perhaps just wear it to the drive through ATM machine. The point is that you can write the thank you card to Aunt Azalia and tell her you wore it “downtown” and felt very comfortable and proud in it.
And the sweater your husband bought for you? You know the one, you told him you were a size 12, so it is size 12. It can be covered with a trench coat in January. Just a side note. If you have been married more than five years and you tell your husband you wear size 12, he will go ahead and buy an 18. They are slow but they catch on eventually.
Well that’s enough to get the creative juices flowing. Mostly you need to remember, do it in January – or the week after Christmas might be better. But you’re too late for that until next December.
