An Ode to Ms. O'Neill

Here's why these Dolce & Gabbana scarves on Overstock.com are awesome, in the form of a 5-paragraph persuasive essay outline as taught to me by my freshman English teacher in high school, Ms. O'Neill, and forcibly untaught to me by every college professor I've ever had:

Title: These Dolce & Gabbana Scarves are Awesome

Thesis Statement: These Dolce & Gabbana scarves are awesome and you should buy them.
Broad opening statement: Scarves are vital and versatile accessories in any woman's wardrobe, and colorful scarves are the best.

Paragraph (argument) 1: These scarves are really pretty.

Paragraph (argument) 2: These scarves are by Dolce & Gabbana.

Paragraph (argument) 3: These scarves used to cost $200, but on Overstock.com, they cost $24.99. Yes, $24.99. As in, you save 175 bucks.

Conclusion (restate thesis statement and main points): These Dolce & Gabbana scarves are awesome and you should buy them. They are really pretty, they are by Dolce & Gabbana and they used to cost $200, but now they cost $24.99.

Pretty persuasive, huh?

(I know this picture makes 'em look a tad old-ladyish, but I assure you, close up they are tres chic.)

Ok, these scarves may be pretty but the thing is I alreaday own a great number of scarves that I never wear. I don't know how - please help! When I put one on I look just like an english teacher. In return for your advice I will soon post a recipe for fail-safe and completely irresistible chocolate souffl├ęs. (To be passed on to your boyfriend).

Oh, why why did you have to remind me of Ms. O'Neill?! When I think of her, I think of her puffy mottled looking white and gray feet with perfectly manicured toenails and how I was scarred by her advocacy of 60-year-old virginity. However, you have done a perfect example of that red and yellow triangle five paragraph format poster she had.
