When I was in the 4th grade my parents gave me a Pepto-Bismol pink parka for Christmas. I hated pink and consequently, hated the parka. I tried to ruin it by sledding down the hill on my back. The only thing that happened is that I got in trouble for getting my coat dirty. It took me 2 years to out-grow the ugly thing. To this day, my family won’t buy me pink.
