It's the Thought

It was Nolie's birthday yesterday, so we took our brother out for dinner at Barceluna. (Side note: You know how most restaurants serve warm, freshly baked bread that you can dip into some vinegar and oil? Well, they give you olives, brown and green olives. o_O) When we came back home, we gave Nolie his gift, which I noticed Mr. Woo was eyeing himself (hehe).

Unexpectedly, Mr. Woo mentioned that he had something for me too. Being the selfish being that I am, the first question out of my mouth (after squealing with excitement) was, "Is this my Christmas present...?" If it was, I was going to be disappointed that he was letting me open it so early. I like surprises and I like gifts, but 13 days early? But my patient husband replied, "No. It's a "just because" gift. I hope you like it. I thought you could use it since you get cold."

"Awwww, thank you!!" (Shame on me!) So I open the package and decided to go with a better question. "Are you sure this is going to fit me?"

With the lake of deals going around online, Mr. Woo caught this as one of his fish. "Yeah, it said one-size-fits-all."

Who am I to not believe my husband? With 11.5 months on his past track record, he's still holding strong. Therefore, I tried it on for size and felt like a queen (literally, just without the crown). Take a look:

Note: Those things hanging down the sides to my knees are actually the sleeves.

Pooki, you're so sweet and thoughtful! It's not your fault that they didn't have people like me in mind when they labeled it with "all." I shall always be warm when I go for a swim in a sea of red fleece. :)

I said "I will" to Mr. Woo! said...

@Dan - Meee too. I felt bad because I couldn't stop laughing.
@Hannah - Ohhh, it WOULD be good for studying/sleeping at Moff5 and/or Study Hall! Hm, maybe even to some lectures...
@Junia - But if I wear it outside the house, it'll pick up so much dirt/dust/puddle water! Yuck.

one size fits all (members of your household)

@Sara - Actually, I had Mr. Woo try it on last night and it fit him very well! No cape-likeness on him at all.
