“You’re nine.” I replied.

“Why don’t you have a backpack of your own?” Michael asked. I had just put my vest in his pack. Earlier I’d stowed my extra contact lenses and my just-in-case glasses and my spare chocolate with him.

“I do,” I said. “It’s in the locker room.”

“Well, maybe you should wear it while you’re actually skiing.”
