What can I say about this sweater, other than, "It was fine." It was long enough, didn't annoy me during the day, and, darn it, it was yellow. If I need to wear something yellow to match a patterned skirt, I guess this is my go-to option. But could I go through the next few years knowing that I did not have a yellow turtleneck in my wardrobe? Would the shame be too great (or, some might argue, would wearing a ten-year old snooze of a sweater be far more shameful)?
So, I'm keeping it. But it's on probation, and I will cut it no slack (wouldn't you know it, the stain came out in the wash. There goes that excuse).
My rating: Taylor Hicks. He may have won American Idol (mostly because Chris Daughtry had that surprise elimination in the final four), but he is certainly nobody's favorite. This may be the best of the yellow turtlenecks, but it could never best Phillip Phillips or Carrie Underwood (or even Lee DeWyze, another lackluster Idol winner) in a sing-off.
The body count over the past 5 days: 5 sweaters. Maybe I'm not such a sweater hoarder after-all.
