today a friend told me she had to work out at the gym because it was too hot to be outside. she told me this as i was about to reach for my scarf and head home.
"uhhh, i'm wearing leg warmers today.
and a hooded sweater.
with a long-sleeved t-shirt underneath.
and a scarf."
she was aghast. she lives in kansas, where it's 110 degrees, like the rest of the country. she thought it had something to do with global warming (colding?). i told her it had nothing to do with greenhouse gases or harmful chemicals, and more with it being august in the city. you know, winter and summer, transposed.
