Something you don’t see everyday
From a distance, I thought he was shirtless but wearing shorts; after all, at 85 degrees, this was the first really hot day of the year, and college students sometimes wander around campus half-dressed. That’s how they roll. By the time I got to my car, however, I realized that there were no shorts at all — just a loin cloth. A back pack and a loin cloth, worn by a student ambling casually down the lane. In all other ways, today was a typical work day on The Hill.
After work, I met a friend for coffee, though I ended up ordering iced chai instead (sweet, vicious sugar!) and we spent an hour catching up on each others’ lives and complaining about Republicans.
And since this was the first truly hot day of the year, I finally broke down and turned on the window air conditioners this evening. I forget every year how loud they are, and I will be so glad to have central air again when we move into the new house!
