    Oh no. He brought the offensive coat as the foundation of his layering. I'm going to have to offer him an alternate layer, and offend him before we even get started.

    Done. I did it without offending him too badly. I assured him that it's a winter coat smell, and that his breath and body odor don't offend me. He took it rather well, but I think it's because he's getting the brand new safety orange jacket of mine that he's been coveting.

    Fair exchange. And you don't have to toss your cookies before noon.

    Send it to the cleaners and just hang the ticket on the coat hanger where the jacket was...
