When I was in High School I remember teasing my mom about a really tacky belt she owned. It was some cheap piece of shit that came with a pair of pants that she owned. It was one of those clothing “sets” you can buy at a place like K-Mart. I do not recall what the belt even looked like, but I feel as though it stones, studs, or gems on it. I remember teasing my mom about this cheap as ugly belt, and my sister chiming in. My mom had owned this pants and belt set for quite some time. It was nothing new.
The memory that sticks me the most is that later that day I saw the belt sitting in the trash can. She threw it away soon after I had instigated teasing her about it.
