Day 65: Prepare to freeze
November 7, 2010 § Leave a comment
I think that I’m ready.
Big thick coat from Costco that makes me look like I’m wearing a collapsed bounce house?
$200 for 3 pairs of cold weather shoes?
- Leather boots. It’s cold but it isn’t snowing and I’m interviewing someone important. I hope. So I need to make a good impression.
- Fur lined leather boots with rubber soles. It is really ridiculously cold out and the ground is coated in snow. My feet require protection – but not just any protection. Protection in the form of the fur of some [fake] dead beaver. But I’m still interviewing someone important and still need to look nice.
- Badass snow boots. For being badass in the snow. And still looking relatively presentable. But mostly just badass.
CHECK! (Note: Stephanie insisted I buy these. I do not have a shoe shopping addiction. There happened to be a sale, okay? Lay off.)
Take a practice jog in under armor, gloves, a winter cap and running pants in 40 degree weather?
CHECK! Nose ran like a faucet but did not freeze to my face, so all was good.
Come to terms with the fact that I am going to cry like a [stork after he dropped a] baby when winter hits?
