That Hoodie

for Sadje’s What Do You See? photo prompt.




I should have checked the size more carefully before I bought that hoodie. It was way too big.

The stretchy part at the bottom came down below my knees which meant I had to shuffle, not stride.  It did however gradually ride up which allowed my speed to increase, but then another problem occurred. It got higher and higher until my face ended up where my chest should have been and I couldn’t see where I was going.

Fortunately, it was high-viz yellow so at least people could dodge me as I headed in their direction!

I walked into a tree the other morning. I’m not normally one for uttering expletives but boy, did I cuss.  At least I wasn’t concussed! 

There was only one thing for it. I had to admit defeat and buy a new one and that’s exactly what I did.

Oh dear, it’s way too small, it’s so tight I can hardly breathe. I should have checked the size more carefully before I bought it.

    Haha! Sounds like Goldilocks story. Perhaps the third one will fit perfectly. Thanks Keith for joining in with this fun story.

    Haha 😆 – perhaps a trip to the opticians may be in order – good tale 😂

    Maybe you should try things on before buying them. Although, that is a problem if you order online.

    Brilliant, Keith! Goldilocks will finally get the right one next time.
