in Texas they mean something completely different than they do in the UK.
Here they are, in my opinion, UGLY, overly big, over priced (anything from $60 - $105) rosette type things with ribbons on that the girls wear during "Homecoming" week. Apparently boys wear smaller ones on their arms. As you can imagine the Teenager is NOT happy that he may have to wear one and has decided that he IS NOT under any circumstances going to!!
What do you think? Pretty? Ugly? or both?!! Me I'm going with both :0)
