“I think I need to buy a new hoodie” I said this as I noticed the sleeves are starting to stretch and tear.
“Done with Janet?” My friend asked me
“Yeah, it ran it’s course” I didn’t name my hoodie “Janet”. It’s a Janet Jackson hoodie (seriously). A year ago when I was living in Victoria, my friend and I went to Value Village to look around, and that is where I found this hoodie. It’s all black, but on the front of it, it says ” ROCK WIT CHU” In my defense, the only reason that I bought it, was because it reminded me of a 7 Seconds song: “Walk Together Rock Together”
Later in the evening we went for sushi with some friends, and while we were in the parking lot; my friend Layla asks me “Are you wearing a Janet Jackson hoodie?” I respond with “What?! No I’m not!” Little did I know, that on the side of the hood it says “Janet Tour 2008” I flipped out and immediately changed hoodies. Over the course of the year people always ask me “Who’s Janet?”
A month later after moving back home, I was at a coffee shop and waiting in line. A lady next to me turns me and asks me “Is that a Janet Jackson hoodie?” I sighed and said yes it is. She smiled and said “Oh I love Janet!” I seriously could have just left the conversation at that. BUT NO, I just had to tell her the story, and that I didn’t know that it was a Janet hoodie. She responded with “Oh, well 2008 wasn’t a good year for her anyways”
Now when someone asks, I just say “Yep!” and just go about my business.
