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.”
