The Snuggie Proves Its Worth

The camo Snuggie proved its worth this cool morning, keeping me warm as I watched the rising sun's show: a swath of mottled pink across a gray-purple sky,1 a show that lasted just minutes before fading into the white-gray sky of an overcast day.

1 The sunrise has some serious fashion panache. On almost anyone/thing else, those colors would look totally tacky.

  1. Have you ever caught the sky looking tacky? How does it manage that feat? Maybe because in the tacky we discern some tasteless human purpose. That would explain why a garden planting can look tacky, but a forest can't. Maybe.

      Actually there are many tacky forests--replanted pine forests or pine plantations as they call huge plots of replanted pines in the south.

    2. The tasteless human purpose would be implicit in the "replanting."

    3. I think you got it about right, Matt.
