. this coat weighs a ton.
. during winter it resides on my couch most of the time because at the end of the day i don't have the superhuman strength required to hang it back up in the closet.
. before taking the coat on or off i first i have to take out any chunky watches or bracelets because otherwise my wrist won't go through the narrow sleeve.
. i can't hang it in the back of chairs at nice restaurants because if i stand up, the chair will tip over without me as a counterweight.
. i have to tip coat check attendants extra because i feel guilty for making them struggle.
. my sister thinks i look like the grim reaper when i wear it.
. a lady on the street once offered to buy the coat off my back because apparently it's the perfect winter maternity coat.
despite all this, i love this coat. i wouldn't have it any other way.
