It's good cape weather this time of year. Besides a Detroit Lions jersey, there aren't many articles of clothing with worse status implications than a cape. I like the idea of a wearable blanket, but in terms of practicality, a cape would be tough to wear while riding a bike, and you'd probably choke yourself the first time you sat on it getting into a car. My friend wore one on a moped once and it worked okay, but I also decided the other day that the worst imaginable injury to have to tell people about would be getting your cape caught in the back wheel of your moped.
All around bad news. My friend broke his foot at our kickball game, and he even had to tell people at work that it was a softball game. A moped/cape accident would have ruined him.
