Who doesn’t love a good Christmas story? And by that I mean, who doesn’t love A Christmas Story. There are so many good quotes from this movie, and I would argue the fra-gee-lay scene might be the most quoted line of the move.
This sweater also had a legitimate fragile moment of it’s own. Yesterday, during the 4 hours she was home alone, Miss Mocha Jo decided to get on my dining room table (mind you it’s a tall/bar height table), chew on the nicest pair of scissors I own, chew and consume some craft glue, and chew at the puff paint on my holiday sweater I was letting dry. Between the craft supplies she destroyed and the mess she made when her tummy started hurting (I’ll save you from these images…), my holiday sweater suffered the least.
The silver lining in her destruction was that she chewed on the easiest piece to replace, and her destruction didn’t prevent me from wearing my holiday sweater today.
My guess is that Mocha was triple-dog-daring me to prove just how good I am at crafting holiday sweaters.
