You know I hate this, right?

Love and hate
One or the other
When you fit, I love you
When you don’t, hate is too mild a word
Today, I hate you
Clothing from Hell

    The expression on the dog’s face is priceless! Good response to the prompt!

    That embodies a universal feeling, don’t it?

    Yeah, very creative response, the poor dog, and that is a cool little poem with a broader meaning, very nice post.

    For some reason the picture is right over the poem so I can’t read it! But, that pic is priceless! I’ll try again later and maybe it’ll work right.

    Rethabile says it well, as does gingatao. Our clothes are our plummage.

    Now, this doggie is stylin!

    Damn, girl. This is clever on many layers. Poor puppy! (I picked the words to highlight them to read.)

    Thank you!

    I can’t read the words in this browser as the pic is covering them up but he sure looks like a hot-dog in that jersey!

    Oh my, it’s like you are speaking from my closet. So true and so simply put.

    Very nice
