Outside of the Matter


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.
