It’s a beautiful day in this neighborhood, A beautiful day for a neighbor,
Would you be mine? Could you be mine?
I have always wanted to have a neighbor just like you,
I’ve always wanted to live in a neighborhood with you.
So let’s make the most of this beautiful day, Since we’re together, we might as well say,
Would you be mine? Could you be mine? Won’t you be my neighbor?
Even when I was a little kid, I never watched this show. Mr. Rogers, sitting there, singing his song, asking for strangers to be his neighbor. It was kind of emo in a way, this middle aged man with grey hairs sitting by himself, tying up his shoes, crooning about how nice of a day it is to have a neighbor like me. I don’t know about you, but if my neighbor sat there singing to my (yet non-existant) kids about being “being mine”, I’d have to nail his doors and windows shut and burn his house down with him still inside. Then he wouldn’t think it’s such a beautiful day to have a neighbor just like me. Though the topper to Mr. Rogers that made him so wrong was his cardigan sweaters. It wasn’t a good look in the 80’s and it’s not a good look now.
Number 7: Button up tight Cardigan Sweaters
There’s a few times where this looks good but many times when it doesnt. It’s great for when you’re in the office, around the home and lazing around keeping warm and cozy. But anywhere else it’s just a boring look. It screams “I’M BORING…and lazy so I just put on a shirt with a cardigan sweater on top.” I’m not talking about the stylish ones, only the button up tight ones. They remind me of properness, prep school, uptight and should be paired with horn-rimmed glasses and a beehive hairdo. I even see kids wearing them and thats not ok for any age. If you dress your kids in cardigan sweaters and they go to school and get beat up, it’s your fault. If Mr. Rogers sees your kid, he’ll say “wow that kid dresses like me so I’m going to kidnap them and make them mine.” Again, your fault. Don’t do it, don’t be mean to your kids. Those kids will grow up to be adults and continue to wear cardigan sweaters and the loop continues. End the insanity now. Look this lady even got arrested for wearing a cardigan sweater and thats the way it should be…illegal.
