I can’t believe it is only 2 weeks since I was cursing mother nature for her prank-weather-cruelty. As this week has seen me lose several of my Mid-West weather-related virginities;
- It was the first time I could leave the house without a coat (not that fake time where I did it and then instantly regretted it and had to huddle in the door of Subway for the bus and began to rouse suspicion as a potential sandwich thief) but leaving the house without a coat and actually maintaining a stable body temperature all day.
- Not having to wear socks with shoes – perhaps in terms of body odour this should also be the last time I do this – but hey the feeling of fresh air and sunshine on your toes is everyman’s dream right?
- However it was also the first time I checked the weather forecast and it was forecasting rain….I know – what? Because of the insanely cold Winters, Milwaukee has a reputation for being one of the driest cities in America (basically it’s too damn cold to rain). But this whole Spring fling we have going on at the moment means that it has decided to call in the waterworks.
So, Milwaukee, really I’m not angry, I’m just so disappointed.
