Last night as I chose on my clothes for today, I pulled out a turtleneck. Despite it officially being spring, by the calendar, I knew it was going to be cold today.
This morning I look at my footwear. Originally, I had selected loafers, I switched to booties. I knew it was going to be cold today.
I look out the window and see the tree branches yield to wind. Soft open knit beret? – Sorry, you’re on the bench. Tightly knit grey toque – suit up! I knew it was going to be cold today.
Last, but hardly least, I pull my red pea coat into service. After all, I knew it was going to be cold today.
Forewarned and armed, I open my front down and head down the stairs. I reach the curb to cross the street. Now away from my building protecting me from it, a gust of wind sneaks around and slams into me. I mean, I’m physically shifted from the ferocity of it. How rude!
So what comes out of my mouth: “Holy f—! I didn’t know it was going to be cold today!”
