I wish it were the kind of weather where I could wear a nice mid-weight wool coat, cinched at the waist with a light scarf and hat. Alas, it’s too chill for that. I just bought a new puffer. Got it at Macy’s, where I watched a girl, out of sheer frustration, push an entire rack of full length down coats to the floor. Funny enough, the coats were so plush they didn’t make a sound. When I turned around, it was as if a forest floor had been cleared. The girl behind the register just looked at me wryly. Someone did that yesterday, too, she said.
