Super Freak. She’s Super Freaky…yeow!

I’m a freak. The meteorologists last night and this morning indicated unseasonably cool weather (autumn-like, they said) with rain tapering to drizzle. I decided not to wear shorts to the office for the first time all summer…nor a t-shirt…not even sneakers! I was going to go to work all professional-like!


So, I threw on my favorite 501’s*, slipped on some black boots, and even wore a thin, long-sleeve button-down shirt. Man, I was stylin’.


I am now at the office at 9:00 a.m. dripping in sweat. I can’t blame the meteorologists because their prediction was correct (for once). It is only 61 degrees outside, there’s no sun and the humidity and dew points are low. I’m just a freak – there’s no reason I should find 61 degrees to unbearably hot.


I guess I should have known better since the Boston area had the coldest winter in over 100 years and Matt and I didn’t turn the heat on once. Even more odd, we started testing the central-air conditioning in February…and began using it full-time starting in March (while it was still snowing).


 


*Levi’s jeans are about as professional as I get…I don’t even own a suit (I would wear one of Matt’s old ones if I needed to).I haven’t tied a tie in years (and most likely forgot how). Khaki’s you say? Nope – don’t own any. Belts? I wear Matt’s if I need to.

    Chad – I hated jeans myself in high school (after having been traumatized for wearing ToughSkins in 2nd grade).

    Thomas – it is definitely nice having a boyfriend with a wardrobe…but there are even better things about Matt than his wardrobe.

    this guy doesnt own a wallet for chrissakes! you cant realistically expect him to wear a belt, much less a tie or shoes!

    I think one of the reasons I got into the arts instead of business is because the prospect of having to maintain a wardrobe of suits and actually WEAR THEM on a daily basis completely horrified me. My taste in clothes and how to wear them might be called unconventioinal but I am SO happy!

    Air conditioning in March? No heat all winter? And I thought I was always hot! You are a freak…
