I see my friend Lauren every weekday while we are at work, except on Wednesdays because Lauren goes snowboarding Wednesday afternoons. I do so miss that girl on Wednesday afternoons. Maybe Lauren could use one of these capes when she's doing her thing. Note that it "serves alternately as a sail and a brake..."

...it reminded me of Wile E. Coyote's bat cape. :)
