As I was sitting at the bus station waiting for my bus, I noticed this woman with a fake fur coat. It looked really warm. I was also dying to feel it. So I walked towards her. I asked her if the coat was warm and she said yes. I asked her if I could stroke it and she smiled and said I could. So I did and it felt lovely. When my bus arrived I wished her good day.
There's nothing bleak about my experiences of winter.
