It just occured to me I don’t know if there’s an etiquette regarding quoting Twitter bits in blog posts, so I’ll fudge along.
Anyway, the other day (yesterday?), Twitterer #1 twitted about it being 36 degrees and uncomfortably cold. Twitterer #2 said she wished it was 36 degrees where she is (paraphrasing), and I said we don’t even zip our coats for 36 degrees. I thought about that exchange today.
I had some errands to do in the big city, so I pulled on a hooded sweatshirt and threw my coat in the passenger seat (because it’s a well-known New England fact that getting on the highway in the winter without your coat will result in either a blown tire or mass engine failure). I was walking through the Best Buy/Target parking lot, enjoying the beautiful day and the sun on my face and the fact I wasn’t weighed down in outerwear, when one of those outdoor sign thermometers caught my eye.
It was 33 degrees.
I also drag-raced a Saab into the merge point of a two-lane on-ramp and won. Nice day. :groucho:
