MONTREAL – Friends and colleagues wished Mara Côté a heartfelt goodbye this afternoon, as the notoriously chilly account manager slid effortlessly inside an oversized wool turtleneck for the duration of fall and winter.
“It’s been a great summer, but I would rather be enclosed in a sweater prison of solitude for several months than feel winter’s hateful breath on my skin again,” said Côté.
Well-wishers looked on wistfully as Côté’s neck, head and finally a single hand waving a melancholy farewell disappeared inside her impressively insulated alpaca wool sweater-dwelling. Reports say that after several men in full suits refused to adjust the office thermostat to create a comfortable environment during the cooler seasons, Côté was given no choice but to vanish inside the womb-like interior of a heavy duty sweater.
Before she was fully engulfed by her turtleneck, Côté requested that daily snacks be discreetly dropped into the sweater’s turtleneck hole for sustenance.
Sources say that contacts close to Côté eagerly await her spring emergence, wherein she will seamlessly glide out of the wool turtleneck and into an adorable vintage romper.
