    I assume that "goodies" are good people. Hoodies are articles of clothing. They are usually a sweater with a hood that one can pull over the head. People who wear such clothing are generally thought of as bad people - criminals and such.

    I'm going to feel very self-conscious on the bus to work this morning in my hoodie!
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Don't... people should be afraid of you! You could whip out your red pen and cut off a dangling participle without even batting an eye.
