"so, you're not wearing pants today?"
I run in the below zero weather, walk the dog in it *, walk other dogs in it, etc. I have lived in this sh!t all my life, and although I get chilled easily, I know how to dress.
There is a teenager on our street and I saw him going out to the school bus yesterday.
It was up to 2 degrees.
It was windy.
He was wearing a tee shirt ONLY.
His family has the means, believe me, and it is dangerous to go out without a coat when its this cold, acting all macho. What a dumbass! And I am expecting people like that to grow up and take care of me when I am 88???
I thought my southern friends would like to see what dressing in extreme cold involves.
I had just laid out the OUTFIT and snapped the pics and the wife is like "So, you're not wearing pants today? You'll freeze your winkle!!!!"
Ah. The jeans were across the room....see, there is so much to wear you have to make a list and check it twice....
Let's see, jeans, teal undies, striped and pink and green argyle socks, long undies, bigass Canadian boots, lined mittens, lambswool scarf, lined hat, enormous down parka, capilene undershirt, robot tee shirt, wool sweater....I am like a Patagonia model, hmm?
*Poor dog has to go out nekkid in this. She has a coat but won't wear it too often. Just easier to NOT walk her, just take her out for the quick tinkle.
And just to prove that I DO go outside and not only pose in my living room....note: JEANS ON.
Maggie and katie were over again Wednesday... Katie says "I am not a dog person". YEAH, RIGHT!
