Coat envy...

I'm glad it warmed up a little yesterday and today. It was warm enough to wear my summer jacket to work! (I hope it doesn't get colder by the time I have to go home.) I mean, I like the cold and all, but sometimes it's simpler to wear fewer layers and I don't really feel like hauling out my big winter parka just yet. I feel like I look like an idiot. I really need to get something cooler looking. It's certainly warm enough but I gotta be cool when I warm, ya dig? *laugh* Maybe I'll get one of those trenchcoats like Neo has in the 2nd Matrix (it was on TV, like, a million times over the weekend, plus the first one and Dark City... Woo hoo!). You know the one that flips up only at the bottom half, makes him look a little like a priest? I like that coat. I could be cool in a coat like that. *sigh*

I purchased a new coat last week. It makes me look like a marshmallow, but it keeps me warm and dry. It's car coat length, which is appropriate for a suburban mom with 3 kids and a dog--any aspirations of coolness were abandoned quite some time ago. The store forgot to remove the plastic theft detection disc, so for several days I travelled in fear of tripping alarms--keeping my receipt handy just in case.
