An Ode to the Vest
I know you get a lot of critics calling you “impractical.” I’m truly sorry about that, because, when you think about it, aren’t all the best things in life pretty impractical? I’m talking beach cruisers, bright blue pedicures, stacks of jingly bracelets and rompers—all pretty impractical but we still can’t help but love them. That’s why I’m going to spend a little more time in you—thank you for keeping my body warm, my back stylish and my arms free for hugging, running or just throwing around in the air.
I might even pick up one or two of your friends so I don’t wear you out completely. That would just be impractical.
