Today, my parents decided to go Christmas shopping. The fact that I was attempting to do some literature homework at the time didn't matter to them. "You can make it up tomorrow." (It doesn't seem to matter that I've told them that I had plans for playing Subspace throught most of tomorrow; I don't get to decide my schedule.) 16 though I am, they wouldn't let me just stay home by myself.
So we went, got thoroughly disappointed in the quality of what we planned to buy, and got other stuff. I got hungry, so my father accompanied me outside the store to eat the granola bar I brought.
I started to put my coat back on. (It was only 40 degrees today...) A person passing made a helpful observation:
"Your jacket's upside-down."
