I thought the red coat was a bad choice. It looked great but it looked to be too light weight. I was sure it wouldn’t be warm enough. I was sure we would end up having to buy another new winter coat along with it and this second coat, bought out of parental pragmatism, would never get worn.
But I was one lone male voice in a house full of females. A voice after the fact since the red coat had already been purchased. And what did I know?
I think one of my New Year’s resolutions should be to be less practical.
