Love Affair with a Hoodie

Most of us probably have a favorite hoodie, also known as a sweatshirt. I write about how a love affair develops with this inanimate object.

Where the hoodie love affair began

Each of us probably has our own special story of how our love affair began with our hoodies. For many it was probably intentional, for others it was accidental, and for some it was probably arranged complete with gift wrap and a ribbon. But regardless, we each have come to love our favorite hoodie. It has been with us through it all, unconditionally. Our hoodie is always there for us!

How the perfect hoodie is found

Our choice in hoodies is unique. It has to meet certain criteria to be worn over and over again. It has to be able to endure countless laundry beatings and still love us. It has to be willing to be tossed on the floor without resentment. For some size does matter, for others not so much. We each look for that special quality that will stand the test of time: deep pockets, extra large hood, a v-neck, a crew neck, maybe even a little hidden pocket. We desire our love affair to be comfortable, soft, inviting and warm. We yearn for our hoodie to provide us with those qualities.

Why the hoodie love affair endures

We develop a bond with the soft cotton insides and respect the rugged exterior for that is what makes our beloved hoodie so special. We wear our love affair on the sleeves of our hoodie. It takes care of us when we are sick, it celebrates in victory when our favorite team wins, yet it also stands with us through the defeats. Our love affair with our hoodies has grown stronger through the ebb and flow of our life. That little stain from a glass of wine reminds of us the special day we spent with our significant other. That tear in the sleeve reminds us of the day we got snagged by a screen door when we ran out to celebrate the news of our kid being accepted by a university. And those paint stains...well those memories could lead to "other" stories not appropriate for this article.

When the hoodie must say good-bye

As the weather begins to turn warm, it is inevitable our love affair for our favorite hoodie will fade as the temptation of tee-shirts taunt us. Our hoodie will not be jealous. It can endure months of hibernation patiently waiting to be close to us once again. But what do I know because, after all, I'm not a hoodie psychologist; I'm just a guy that has love affair with my favorite hoodie.
