274 1 Old red jacket
A number of years ago I visited an aunt of mine and in the corridor I found this old jacket hanging more or less hidden behind some much newer coats and jackets. I remarked to my aunt that the jacket must have been quite old, upon which she took it from behind the other coats and told me that she couldn't even remember when she had last worn it. Almost 40 years ago she had loaned me an anorak which she eventually gave to me and I still have.
As she had the red jacket in her hand she inspected the pockets which appeared to be empty, saying that the jacket could just as well be binned.
I asked her if I could have it as it still seemed in good order. She then hesitated, tried it on herself, but then finally said: "OK, I haven't worn it for years, so if I can do you a favour.."
I then had to try it on myself and she looked at the result, telling that it was perhaps a bit tight and wished me a lot of pleasure with it.
Taken from the car window - the guy in the red jacket reminded me of Elton John!
