When I first got married and my wife Erin moved into our home, she noticed right away that I had a slight addiction in my wardrobe. It’s true, I was and am a hoody man. Much like Adam Sandler singing in his song “Red Hooded” sweat shirt, there is something I love about that 50 cotton and 50 poly. And for the most part I don’t vary too much in my hoody colors which drives Erin even more nuts. Most of my hoodies are athletic grey or some shade of blue. The lone exception being a red Chicago Blackhawks hoody.
The reason I love the hoody has to do with comfort. When I slip my hoody on I feel warm and soft all over. I like having the option of a pouch and hood to cover my hands and ears when they chill. In my hoody I am totally relaxed.
As you can imagine with the slight changes of temperature and leaves starting to fall, my hoody excitement is growing. Only a few more degrees and I get go back to my favorite wardrobe. And this year I am not going alone. While my wife Erin still has not embraced the hoody the way I have, this fall and winter season I will be joined by both of my children. I will show them just how comfortable they can truly be in the crisp days of fall and chilly days of winter.
So, as fall approaches and the temperature drops, ask yourself a question. Have I truly embraced the soft, warm, wonderfulness that is a hoody? If you have great, if not I urge you strongly to make that choice!!!
