Just look at this little family of jackets. There’s a dad (far right), a mom (second from right), and two teenagers (far left and second from left). And I put this whole family on my back and carried them forth into the cold.
I’m not too proud to move with the muffled dignity of restricted limbs. I’m not too haughty to have a quartet of jackets hitchhiking on the transportation of my person. You might feel the same way too if you hied from Florida and the weather outside your Minnesota doorstep was -18º F. You too might embrace the idea of a family of jackets to warm your shaking limbs.
