I am the first to say that I wish I could live on some tropical beach and wear nothing but a bathing suit and flip flops, but then I always welcome the colder weather that rolls into these parts this time of year. I do love the beach and the warm weather, but I suffer the heat – especially humid heat. I cannot stand my own skin and there is nothing you can do about it especially if you do not actually live and work on a beach only yards from the sea or ocean. That is exactly why I welcome the cold. You can actually bundle up and “fight” the elements. When you are hot there are really not many options especially if you have to move about town. Of course, it does also give you plenty of clothing to choose from whether you are headed to work or just about town. There is only so much you can do with a bunch of T-shirts and dress shirts are never more uncomfortable than during the morning rush hour when the heat on subway platforms reaches triple digits and you are forced to point the A/C nozzles in your cars towards your armpits to avoid those embarrassing handshakes before your presentation.
Too each their own, so I cannot argue those who prefer the idea of beach bumming it the entire day. Although, I start to mumble about the cold by mid-February, I still cannot wait for the first chill that creeps in around November.
