Ugly Sweater

     Victor and Gloria stood in the center of the group as a hush swept through the room. The crowd surrounding them waited in anticipation. Finally, Becky announced the results of the vote.
     “And the winner of our ugly sweater contest is… Gloria!”
     The partygoers cheered and music roared out of the stereo. Becky presented Gloria with a bottle of wine as her prize. People patted her on the back and told her how awful they thought her sweater looked. It seemed like everyone in the room was having a great time. Almost everyone, that is.
     “Darn it!” Victor said to himself.
     He was crushed that Gloria won the contest—not because he wanted the cheap bottle of wine, but because he thought her sweater looked really cool.
