This was an idea for a prompt from last year…. pick an item from your closet and write about it.
If you’re not sure what this is.. it’s a hanger of scarves from my closet.
This item made me giggle because a few years ago my children were asking me what I wanted for Christmas. I didn’t need anything but decided I was going to start wearing scarves and told everyone that was what I wanted for Christmas.
My wish was granted. I got scarves. Homemade scarves, wide formal scarves, spring flower and butterfly scarves, green, pink, blue, tan and paisley scarves.
So I started wearing them only to find out.
I hated scarves.
They got in my way and were heavy on my neck and I could never figure out how to tie them so they looked cute the way I’d seen them on others.
My hanger of scarves is still in my closet looking like a very colorful boogieman. But, I can’t bear to get rid of them. They were such thoughtful gifts and after all, I did ask for them. So, every once in awhile, I try out a scarf just to make sure I still hate them.
