Coat Categories

January 20, 2010

As part of the ongoing attempt to better understand the female gender, the boys and I have recently developed a rough schema for separating different types of women, particularly those found in the Provo vicinity. See, basically you can divide most girls into two broad categories: the Pea Coat girls, and the Furry Hood Coat girls. I guess there’s a third sub-group, the North Face Coat girls, but that’s a much smaller subset right there. Think of the imagery that springs to mind when you think of a woman in a Pea Coat. You already know a little about her personality, her style, even her character. Now apply the same imagining to the Furry Hood Coat class and the North Face contingent. I’m not going to spell them out for you for fear of being pilloried by the female gender, but I’m sure that as you do so, some pretty clear distinctions will arise in your mind. If you are unable to grasp the simple power of these characterizations, please leave a well-argued rebuttal in the comments.

    OH MY GOSH!!!!! You are so ridiculous! My question is: what about girls who wear both styles of coat? I also am wondering what category I fall into? I own a pea coat but I only wear it with church stuff, so I don’t consider myself a pea coat girl. But I also am not a fury coat girl either (because I don’t own one). So does that make me a North Face coat girl even though I don’t own a coat that is “North Face”? Please clarify asap so I don’t lose any more sleep over this matter.

    So you don’t wear a Pea coat, furry coat, or North Face style coat? Please tell, then what kind of coat you do wear?

      Dear Kellen. You can just click the REPLY link to reply to a post, rather than creeping around in Anonymousville. That being said, Heather typically wears a coat of stitched-together muskrat pelts. Apparently an effective insulator, despite the small.

        What happened to my original comment?

    It’s still there. Unless you never submitted it, in which case it isn’t.
