Whew. Winter Hell Week. Minus 20 tomorrow. That'll be the coldest I've ever felt. I'm kind of looking forward to it.
Man, Dante needs to come up with another circle of hell for these folks: People robbed of winter coats at gunpoint. Now, they're not just any winter coat. They're the outrageously expensive Canada Goose coats. But still. That's just bogue.
Years ago, I was a crowded sports bar in a Detroit suburb on a real cold winter night. I saw some guy across the room, putting my winter coat on, preparing to leave. The coat had my hometown's local community college logo on it. I hurried across the room and confronted the guy. It became immediately apparent that he was too drunk to defend himself, either against charges of attempted theft or physically. He apologized and gave me back my coat, and the encounter was over. About ten minutes later, I saw him quick grab some random coat and run out of the bar.
