Like a lot of people her age, my mother often feels chilly. So, my family bought her a fleece warm-up jacket for Christmas to help keep her warm around the house. A typical phone conversation with my mother goes like this:
Irene: It's cold in the house today.
CJ: Why don't you put on that fleece jacket we gave you. That will keep you warm.
Irene: I don't want to wreck it. I'm saving it for best.
CJ: How are you going to wreck it? We'll buy you another one if you spill something on it.
Irene: I had a big lunch today.
I was driving home from work one evening this week, thinking about an errand I had to do and how it was going to be cold out. Then I remembered my nieces had bought me a Springfield College hooded sweatshirt for Christmas that I had not worn yet. Because I did not want to wreck it. It's white and I am afraid I will spill something on it so I'm saving it for some unknown occasion.
