It was “Ugly Christmas Sweater” day at Rose and Henry’s school today, but we didn’t have any overtly ugly sweaters, and obtaining some was the least of my priorities. Henry didn’t want to wear a sweater anyway. But Rose did–and she quickly came up with a plan.
She says that she was one of the four kids her class chose to vote on whose sweater was ugliest. “Of course my friends voted for me,” she says. “But A.H. won–and her sweater was pretty! It had three golden ornaments at the top, and a reindeer in the middle, with a red cotton nose. It wasn’t ugly at all! Mine was way uglier!”
She added, though, that it turned out okay, because the winners from each class had to go up on the stage during the school assembly, and they all got Twizzles, and she doesn’t like Twizzles.
But, still, she can’t understand why a pretty sweater won the Ugly Sweater contest.
