The other day a woman in her 20s commented on how unusual it was that I was wearing my scarf wrapped around my neck and on the inside of my jacket. “I didn’t realize there were other options,” I said. Her eyes lit up. “Oh of course there are!” she exclaimed. “You could loop it around the outside of your jacket so it hangs down a bit”.
I shook my head. “But how will my neck stay warm?” I asked.
She stared blankly at me. “I don’t know…” she said after a moment.
Listen, I may not be the most fashionable person around (stop laughing), but at least I know how to operate a scarf. I can also drive stick, and balance a cheque book. Just kidding. I’ve never balanced a cheque book in my life.
