A WINTER coat has given its owner the unfounded sense of a new beginning.
31-year-old Tom Booker spent more than he anticipated on the coat, which makes him feel like a different person.
He said: “As soon as I saw the coat I was like ‘that’s the one’.’
“I’ll get new shoes to go with it. New shirt. Maybe a Rolex or fake Rolex.
“I’ll ask out the receptionist in work and she’ll say yes and then I’ll demand that my boss gives me a massive raise and also his car keys.’
“Then I’ll drive around town in his BMW, listening to loud drum and bass, proud in the fact that I am a man of wealth and taste.”
Returning home that evening, Booker removed the coat, turned on his computer and sat watching season two of The Wire on Netflix for the third time while eating some pasta.
