Coat of many memories
I wrote about an old coat for the treeware edition today. The column has touched so many people that I can barely keep up with the email.
It's staggering how we are so attached to the dumbest things. For me it's an old down coat.
Anyway, the column is here, if you care to read it.
My dry cleaner/seamstress has since sewn up the coat -- but I have moved on.
UPPITY DATE (28/01/08): This column continues to inspire people to write to me.
But what a surprise to go to the office and find a stunning high-tech down coat on my desk.
A gift from Canada Goose, the red parka, which would withstand Antarctic conditions, has been added to the Star Living section's inventory for our next silent auction in aid of women's shelters and/or the United Way.
Thanks to Canada Goose marketing and public relations coordinator Nadia Angeloni for the thoughtful gift but, of course, I could not accept it.
