In the mail yesterday, Papa Pea received a new (used) parka to use for winter camping. It appears to be extremely well made and brand new, but it did have a bit of an "aroma" about it from being packed away somewhere for a long period of time.
I suggested he hang it out on the deck to give it a good airing out.
This morning as the light got bright enough, I looked out and noticed that we had forgotten all about the parka last night, and it was still gently rotating on its hanger in the breeze.
I told him, "Don't look now, but I think your new parka went on its first overnight winter camping trip without you."
Bet it smells nice and fresh now though.
