I didn't know how to tell him that it was awful. "Listen Joel. Are you sure your mother will like it?"
Looking at me, he smiled and said, "She'll hate it. Don't you see? She'll just hate it. It's perfect. She'll never figure out if I know how ugly it is or if I think it's beautiful. When she comes to see me or if I have to go there, she'll have to wear it. It'll look awful. And when I show it to my grandmother before I send it, she'll never know either. Those two don't realize a guy can have good taste."
