HOW TO SPOT A DRUG ADDICT

"Do you know how to spot a drug addict? " he asked.

"No, how?"

"They always wear clothes that are inappropriate for the weather."

"Really?"

He pointed at a young man wearing a winter jacket, something akin to a parka, who was passing through a parking lot toward the Food City Grocery Store. It was a balmy evening in late may. Maybe in the upper 60's.

"See? You watch, this winter he'll be out walking in the snow in a wife-beater."

"Why is that?"

He shrugged. "I don't know, but watch, it's true. You'll see."

Very true. My boys have spent all summer going to school wearing a wifebeater, white t-shirt (sometimes 2), their required polo shirt, and a hoodie sweatshirt over it all. In the winter they'll start wearing gym shorts and one t-shirt. Happens every year.
