Words are weird.
Is it something she likes and she's hoping to get it back when you don't wear it?
My mom still thinks I liked middle school, which doesn't sound the same except that it is.
Yeah, well, she still thinks she knows what you like. Although, perhaps she never did. It's a mother thing, I think.
Mothers sometimes see things the way they want to see them.
Except for a few select tee shirts for my boys, I stopped selecting my children clothing when they were in middle school. I'd never do it for an adult child.
I would suspect her of wanting to borrow it from you.
Please validate me.
