the aqua-blue letter

I am currently wearing my favourite hoodie, an aqua blue zip-up affair with a letter "A" appliqued in the same fabric on the breast. I love this hoodie because (a) it's cute, (b) it cost about a fiver in Penney's and (c) it actually has my initial on it, in lettering which looks remarkably like my own writing. The thing is, this hoodie was not available with any other letters. While I'm not complaining - there being at least a tenuous reason for me to parade about with a letter A on my bosom and no, not a Nathaniel Hawthorne sort of reason - I'm a little bewildered. Why 'A'? It's not the most common first-name initial. It doesn't have any social, cultural or even mystical significance. Why is it the only letter available? Why? WHY? And is the fact that I'm even thinking about this connected to the fact that I'm meant to be writing up my interview with a certain very attractive medical sitcom star and I keep putting it off?

My keen scientific mind suggests that there might be a connection between the "A" on your hoodie and the fact that the Penney's lady clothes brand is called Atmosphere these days.

Alternatively, perhaps you are just special.

There was a discount clothing shop near my school that sold clothes by a company with the initials "RAM". I have no idea what the actual company name was but as it coincided very neatly with my own initials I didn't complain and just bought stuff. Sadly, I only have one very faded, slightly holey, black zip-up hoodie left which I've misplaced recently.

Is yours anything to do with the company? Or the name of the person who designed it? Or is it about anarchy?

And what about those random numbers they put on hoodies, too? No, I don't mean 69, but other ones. It is beyond me. Beyond me! But perhaps, for a fiver, people Just Don't Care about being branded adulterers...
