Its only a piece of clothing

This morning I was walking my dog in the near by park. It was sunny but the wind had a real bite to it. I have a vest I wear and it has a hood on it. As Ollie and I were walking, sniffing, weeing in the park (the dog not me!) I noticed people walking away from me. I checked my shoes, nup no dog poo.

We walked through the park up to Oxford Street to Bondi Junction. I noticed people baulking and walking away from me again. And then it dawned on me – I was wearing the hood up to keep my head warm.

Do I look scary?

I know sure as eggs my dog doesn’t look scray

How very odd a piece of clothing can cause such a reaction – and this was not just from older people but a vast age range.

The hoodie has caused a few problems I suppose to disguise identities in the London Riots and in the US lately…but seriously? Do we need to have this adverse reaction here, a woman walking her dog on a cold morning?

How very very odd the world is getting
