If you want to destroy my sweater


My 12 yr old son is really into music these days.
He's made a mix CD of rock songs to play in my car.




And I usually enjoy most of his music.
Not all, but most.

Some of it is stuff I listened to in high school, like Aerosmith, Guns & Roses, AC/DC.

Good stuff.

Sometimes, even after I drop him off at school around 7:15am,
and I'm driving to work...his songs stay in my head.
And make me think.

"If you want to destroy my sweater,
hold this thread while I walk away."

Wise Words from Weezer.

I get it.

I can't always see my sweater, but it's there.
Brightly colored and bizarre...

and it's been unraveling.

I'm trying to learn how to sew.

Weezer kicks ass.

What a great metaphor! I hope you learn to sew soon:-)

It may be better to learn to knit. If that's too time consuming, I know a few good knitters who could keep you in stitches.

If it's your "sweater" you want to repair, you may want to learn to knit as well as sew.

Hang in there Rhea. Sometimes when my sweater is unraveling I just have to roll the unravelled part up in a ball until I have time to re-knit it. My Mum always used to say, "When times get tough, tie a knot and hang on." So maybe a knot would even work!
