the jacket gift



When I went to college in Wisconsin years ago, a cousin of mine in Korea had sent to me a winter jacket to wear.  It was really thick and had kept me warm pretty well.

The only problem was its color.  It was a tannish brown, but had dark brown square patches on its elbows and shoulders.  I felt like I should be galloping along with the posse from Bonanza whenever I wore it.

It was so puffy thick, that my arms still stood out, although I actually had ’em both down on my sides.

the sis:  “That cousin must hate your guts.”

me:  “How come?”

the sis:  “Cuz that’s the ugliest jacket I’ve ever seen in my life.”

I spun around a coupla times for her.  Maybe she needed to see the brown jacket in brighter lighting.  So I went and stood next to the window.

Or maybe if I zipped up the brown jacket, I wouldn’t look as puffy…

the sis:  “You look like a big poo.”
