Air Conditioning Revisited

I'm not a fan of air conditioning. I'm not a fan of swelter either, but I'd rather be warm than freezing, and I'd rather breathe fresh air rather than air that's first gone through a machine. I'm also not a fan of air blowing on me, so I'm not prone to using fans, either they're aimed somewhere else just to get their air circulating. In today's Washington Post, there was a great article about some of the other members of the "we don't love airconditioning" club. I'm not alone in the world anymore....

Two things seen on the metro today.
1. As I was entering just past the entrance this morning, a man came rushing out. He was wearing a nice gray suit and a yellow tie that appeared to be tucked into his shirt, as if he had tried to keep it from getting in his scrambled eggs. But upon a closer glance, he was actually wearing a tie that ended mid chest. If you google "short tie" in images, the first picture you see is the tie he was wearing, except his was bright yellow.

2. Tonight, there was a man in his 60's with red hair that looked artificially colored. He was wearing white cuffed slacks and a lilac shirt with two front pockets with what I can only describe as tuxedo shirt pleats down the front in two wide stripes just slightly wider than the pockets. In case you're wondering, it was not a tuxedo shirt. He was wearing nice brown shoes and, wait for it, pastel yellow socks. If he weren't carrying a really beat up suitcase, I would think he had been trying for dapper, but got bad advice. The suit case is still throwing me off...

It certainly takes all kinds......
I'm allergic to fresh air and only feel really comfortable with air that's been conditioned - EXCEPT for about 10 days in the spring and, perhaps 3 weeks in the fall.

I'm just grateful that my mother isn't around to see this heresy. If she only knew what kind of woman I had married . . .
