Baby, It’s Not That Cold Outside

A wise woman once told me that one of the topics that you’re not supposed to talk about is the weather. I can see why money, politics, religion, and even traffic are no no topics of chit chat at dinner parties, but weather? C’mon, weather is interesting. I love bringing up the weather when there’s a lull in the conversation or as small talk because it is THE cliche thing to do.

I’m from Texas, a place where winter basically doesn’t even exist, so I really appreciate this whole Indian Summer thing Mother Nature has blessed the Northeastern U.S. with. Thanks, giiiirl! Unfortately, I am acutely aware that Winter Is Coming. Shit Snow happens, and it’s nice to be prepared.

This past weekend, Joel and I went to see Mutemath play in Detroit and I was only mildly ready for that whole lake effect cold wind bullshit. I wore a turtle neck and my amazing new buffalo plaid coat. Do you see how cute I look?! Probably not because the wind blew my hair in my face in most of these…

Here’s the thing about turtle necks… Yes, they partially remind me of Audrey Hepburn, but they also lead my thoughts down a dark path that I can’t really figure out… When I put on a turtle neck, I think of Shar Peis- you know those wrinkly ass dogs? and then I think of how on Sex And The City, Charlotte was dating a guy who was uncircumcised and she compared him to a Shar Pei and do people think I look like a walking penis?!

Be honest, do I look like a dick?
