An Adventure in Winter Wear

by Deb Baker/Hannah Reed

GUESS WHAT'S HAPPENING WITH MY PHONE



No, that is not a burglar stealing it.

That's me, showing off my new gloves.

I'm really not much of a shopper, but this year I went out to buy new winter outer wear. Scarf, headband, two pairs of gloves. These little knit ones and a more substantial pair for when it gets really cold.

It seems that technology and fashion have once again passed by when I wasn't looking. 

For example, can someone explain why my scarf is round instead of having two ends. Are you laughing? You are! Am I supposed to twist it over my head like a rubber band?

If you've addressed this in the comments, thank you.

But this is the really cool new feature in winter wear for those of you who are as clueless as I am. My gloves work with a touch screen! Remember how we had to pull off our glove to answer our phones? No more. And they come in every price range, from the finest leather right down to the knits like these. In fact, I found a pair on Amazon for $1.99!

Makes me wonder what else I've been missing.
