For two years I have been hating that hood. And in Oregon you use a hood a lot. Even when it rains, no native Oregonian carries an umbrella. I tried adjusting these little elastic sliders that could make the hood tighter. It didn't work. I wrote imaginary letters to Columbia. I vowed never to buy another jacket from them.
Last week, walking with my mom, I began complaining about the hood.
She said, “What about this little Velcro tab back here?” Two seconds later, the hood was in the perfect place.
I wonder if there is something else that makes me unhappy that could be fixed so easily?
