    Default Won't you wear a sweater?

    YouTube - Mister Rogers: "Won't You Wear a Sweater?" Day

    This Thursday, 3/20, would have been Mr. Rogers' 80th birthday. In honor of one of my personal heroes, I will be wearing a zippered sweater in the color of green. I may also break out the blue Keds and a pair of khaki slacks.

    So, denizens of MBTI Central, please won't you wear a sweater?

    I have total respect for someone that so distinctly impacted my early childhood. He was a great man.

    However, I do not wear sweaters. Ever.

    do zip front hooded sweatshirts over tank tops count?

    if so, I'll probably be wearing one even though I'm usually not sure what day it is!

    Mr. McFeely says it doesn't matter, it just has to be special to you. So sure, go for it!

    I never do these "wear something because everyone else wants you to" things (there was no green on me yesterday).

    But for Mr. Rogers? How could I not?

    And I want to see some photos on Thursday. (I'd like to apologize in advance for what I'm about to say.) Cause, y'know, people in sweaters are hot. (I am so, so sorry. It won't happen again.)

    I wear a sweater most days because of cold weather. However, I don't own a cardigan, nor do I have the time to purchase one before tomorrow, therefore I can't wear one.

    Still, I'm very sad to think about his death, and that he won't be here to celebrate his birthday.

    Athenian, I have it on good authority (Mr. McFeely himself) that your non-cardigan sweaters are fine! Mr. Rogers wouldn't be picky about how people showed their respect and admiration, IMO. Even if it's what you wear every day, tomorrow it can be for him. After all, he wore one every day, too.

    I don't often go for these kinds of things, but this and Towel Day (honoring Douglas Adams) are beginning to be annual rituals for me.

    It's a warm day and I suspect I'm just starting to run a fever, so I'll pass. I'll pretend I'm wearing one, though.

    Which day is Towel Day?

    If I had seen this thread earlier, I would have grabbed a sweater for today. I think I have one in my primary office, though, and I'll grab it the next time I'm over there.
