How a Man is Like a Sweater

Backstory: This is an email I got from my mother talking about a man I have a crush on but have not yet found the strength to speak to him.

You certainly don’t want to stand back and watch someone else walk out with that sweater you thought you might like to try on.  It’s also really irritating to keep running into someone wearing that sweater — if you never had the chance to see if it was a good fit or not.   If that happens, one can waste time wondering if it would have fit, and then waste more time looking for something similar, and even obsess about it  - rather than resuming “shopping” & maybe even checking out a different Mall.  There are some great things out there.

If it were only all that easy —  could be why so many are checking out shopping online these days.

Love you,

      All I could think of reading this was HIMYM and Barney calling Robin a suit he’d like to buy or try on or something. Does your mom watch that show by any chance?

      ha! Great. :) When Mom commits to an analogy, she sure does follow it through to the end!

      So cute–like kid’s books w/animals as the main characters because they’re less threatening. Trying on a sweater is so much less threatening than trying on a man :-)

      By “checking out another Mall”, did she mean a different bar, city, or women?
