dievca really wants to buy this sweater for a close friend. It would be given with a great deal of humor.
Because dievca is returning to Scandinavia for work, she’s been running around buying hair dye, allergy meds, Coach items, etc. Some are items people have requested and the rest are gifts dievca has found for friends.
One of her very close friends speaks excellent English. But sometimes words take a different meaning in another country. Like the word “Special” – here’s the Mirriam-Webster definition:
Definition of special
Definition of special
None of these definitions apply to how, dievca’s friend uses the word, “Special”. The friend uses the word to describe someone who is high maintenance and demanding or a little bit crazy. Someone who is a pain-in-the-neck. that one? she’s special
The word is said with an inferred eyeball roll.
OK – its sarcasm.
Wouldn’t this sweater be great for someone who is (wait for it….) special herself? dievca’s friend would laugh so hard if she received this sweater as a gift.
Do you know anyone who is…..Special?
There is no glory in star or blossom till looked upon by a loving eye; There is no fragrance in April breezes till breathed with joy as they wander by.

Redolence is the way something smells.
dievca always pauses on her way to work to enjoy the redolence of the flowering crabapple trees. The trees are in blossom earlier this year than last.
The word redolence almost always refers to the very best odors and scents.
If you describe someone or something as pathetic, you mean that they make you feel impatient or angry, often because they are weak or not very good.
dievca is calling herself pathetic….not in the real sense. In the sense that she knows she is weak and she is laughing at herself.
The custom $400 sweatshirt…The sweatshirt itself is Atelier Notify and $110 — so the custom graphics (only a silk screen – not embroidery, mind you) is $300+.
That dievca is even thinking about this is bad…
Now you know why she calls herself pathetic…
To resist the urge to buy — dievca is finishing off the last of her taxes, grocery shopping and visiting to three open houses on the UWS. Housing prices are going down and it might be time to buy~
Umm, the sweatshirt would be cheaper than buying a co-op. Co-op will last longer, hopefully. 😁
Have a lovely Sunday!
be full of the joys of spring

(of two or more things) to fit together or be suitable for each other:
Definition: Cambridge English Dictionary.
A current description is : A moderate to minimal coverage European panty silhouette with back coverage that is more than a thong but narrower than a bikini. Tangas are a comfortable way to transition from a bikini to a thong.
The main difference between Tanga and Cheeky underwear is the amount of coverage you get. Tangas tend to be more revealing at the back while Cheeky cuts are more covered up.
The Oxford dictionary definition is, “A pair of briefs consisting of small panels connected by strings at the sides.”.
OK, that can differ from string bikini panties by the amount of coverage in the back. Right?
Add Brazilian Panties to the mix:
The Brazilian cut panty name refers to how the back of the panty looks, while the front can be any style. The most common way to describe a Brazilian panty is that it is wider in the back than a thong, but much less coverage than a regular bikini cut.
Consider that the word “tanga” in Spanish means “thong”….
With that…there is chaos….
dievca sees confusion with all the descriptions — just go with the style that your Sir or Madam prefers. XO
