Due to our recent lack of cold weather, my sweaters have been collecting dust in the back of my closet. Even though it has been partially cold in the mornings, it warms up in the day, so a jacket you shed in the afternoon is the only acceptable article of winter clothing. Today was the first day where the windy-coldness of the morning dragged on in the passing hours of the rest of the day, and of course... I forgot to wear a sweater. But this one act of forgetfulness can be forgiven since the weather app called for warmth at high noon. But still I hold a grudge, since walking to school in this weather, without a jacket or even a sweater, has led me to borrow my friend’s jacket that unpleasantly smells like mustard. And after trying to drown out the scent with my perfume without any satisfying results, I gave up because the two scents collided and it smelled sort of something like vomit. But tomorrow I will get rid of this horrid jacket and be safe and warm and cozy in my lovely sweaters at home. And I will remember this day and keep it as a reminder to always check the weather app before I get dressed.
