Dondi Travel Coat
Sometimes you don’t know that you’re looking for something until it’s right in front of you.
Take this coat.
Its DNA reads “bird hunting,” but my friend Giancarlo wears it to gather white Alba truffles.
“Andiamo,” he says to his sharp-nosed beagle, Luigi.
Giancarlo and I follow Luigi until he starts sniffing around an old oak tree that was probably there when Hannibal came through. He starts digging, his tail wagging wildly in the air.
After a few minutes, Giancarlo reaches down and comes up with a walnut-sized orb. “I told you we’d find what we were looking for, Peterman.”
Yes. Yes, we did.
