The street scene can get a little cold at times

The latest in chic homeless fashion:  “The layered look.”

During the winter months I go for the “layered look.” Right now I got on 6 layers of shirts, sweaters and jackets. By the end of the evening I’ll have on 8 layers. When you live outside, that’s how you adjust the thermostat. By putting on or taking off a layer.

I actually own a really nice, expensive down jacket that this guy gave me. It’s warm as hell. Like walking around in a down sleeping bag. But I never wear it. I keep it stashed in my storage locker. I prefer to wear a bunch of cheapo jackets and sweaters.

I’m afraid if I brought my expensive down jacket out here on the street scene, somebody would steal it from my stash spot. Whereas it’s no great loss if somebody steals one of my cheapo jackets. So it’s simpler this way.

Just about everything you do on the streets has a weird, cock-eyed logic to it that only makes sense if you live on the streets.
