Remember when it was winter when you were a kid, and as you turned the knob on the front door to leave the house, your mother would always yell from another room, “Don’t forget your jacket!” You probably remember exhaling heavily, stomping across the hall to the coat closet, and jerking out a stained hooded sweatshirt before rushing out the door, trying to escape before you were assaulted by any more unbidden advice. |
Now that you are an adult, you have probably traded that stained hooded sweatshirt for stylish outer garments, and your closet likely is home to accessories such as a leather NASCAR jacket , a fur coat, and a denim vest. As an adult, you recognize certain life situations when these coverings are appropriate.
For instance, when you actually sit in the screaming stands at the NASCAR races, you would feel completely out of place among the other die-hard fans if you did not have to sheepishly wipe stray mustard that fell from your official NASCAR burger and onto the arm of your jacket.
On the other hand, there is no substitute for a natural fur coat at the annual company Christmas Party. This is your chance to show off your success, so you must dig out the turquoise rings, the silver bracelets, the diamond cuff links, the gold chains, and then top it all off with an expensive shiny fur. All these demonstrations of your wealth are sure to impress handsome and ugly alike.
However, neither the NASCAR jacket nor the fur coat is appropriate for a day at the beach. A denim vest may be worn with or without a shirt, depending on the temperature of the ocean breeze and your gender. Moist sand brushes easily off denim, unlike that with leather or fur. As a bonus, denim vests are usually covered in handy pockets for stowing your pocket knife, your lip balm, and your car keys. With a closet full of these garments, you will be appropriately, and warmly, attired for any important life situation.
