« She's a mean one, Ms. Grinch | Main | Guess. Just guess. »

December 20, 2008


I feel your pain. Actually, I feel his too, because I remember doing the same thing in high school. We did wear boots, as I recall, but no mittens, no hats, no scarves. Coats were small and tight. This in central Ontario, where winter temperatures routinely dropped well below freezing.

Why? Because hats, mittens and coats that actually covered your body were not "cool". Standing huddled around in quivering, shivering, miserable clusters, now THAT was cool.

The more things change...

Boots were a battle I chose not to fight for a few years. This year, Amigo (16) suggested he might need a pair. Now that it's his idea, I bought him a pair. In the middle of a snowstorm, not on sale.

I hate a coat, absolutely hate them. I refuse to wear them. And, even today, I was wearing a short sleeved shirt, hair drenched with sweat (tell me there's not some hormone issues somewhere) and people are running around bundled up like it was 36 outside and felt like 24...which is exactly what the weatherman convinced my husband that it was....I hate coats, jackets, hoodies.....I like it cool.
