Just what it sounds like. It's a sort
of sleeve-type accessory that goes on your
forearm, with a hole
thumb goes. Supposedly
used by "emo" or "goth" or "scene" people. They keep your
arms all warm
and fuzzy. They're nice for when you don't want to wear a sweatshirt, but it's too cool out to just have bare
arms. (just saying, they're also good
of us with scars on our arms..) Personally, I can't go a day without them.
They're also seriously easy to make. If you have any knee-high socks
(new or old), you can just cut them and cut a hole
thumb (sewing that area is best so it doesn't wear out as fast), and BAM! armwarmers.
"Sweet armwarmers. Where'd you get them?"Some
kid: "Why do you wear those all the time?"
Me: "To hide the scars, retard."
kid: "Wow. Freak. You're a cutter?"
Me: "Fuck off."
