Get a Life

My friend Lauren got herself a beautiful, pristine, stylish, cool white coat.  Not a big hunker of a ski jacket.  Not a dorky nurse’s wrap.  But a sleek tabula rasa of a coat that fits her perfectly.

And when I complimented her on it (adding that I would trash a coat like that in 20 minutes if it were mine what with my car-eating habits and such), she simply answered that her New Year’s Resolution had been “to get a life.”

I loved it.  No more sensible black coats.  No more shoulds.  No more duty and drudgery.

A white coat — now that’s living!  Go Lauren!
