this is a little humorous:
i remember despising wearing a coat to school as a kid. it wasn't necessarily a "cool" thing though. it was partly that i didn't want the bulk - yet another thing to carry around all day. i was never much of a locker person. i kept my books in my bag that i needed - and was fortunate to have double copies of most textbooks... one for home, one for school.
i think it may have been a little bit of a northwest thing. our tempteratures are so mild throughout the year. it feels warm in spring and in fall. at least warm enough for a that short walk between your house and you car and then your car and school.
i don't know what it was about coats, but my mom did remind me often to bring a coat. was it some vague form of rebellion? weird. i don't know.
The best time to study for the test - ... is before it's given. The best time to campaign is before the election. And the best time to keep a customer is before he leaves.
