Off Season…


Growing up…I dressed by several rules…among my favorites…

Don’t wear white before Easter…or…after Labor Day…and don’t wear winter clothes in between

Today…I’m breaking the rules by wearing a sweater…not the light weight cotton variety that is acceptable in mid-May and actually throughout the summer…but…a really warm…snuggly one…one that I wore all winter…one that will really keep me toasty…on this cold and rainy day…

And…as warm and snuggly as I feel…I feel an equal amount of discomfort…what will people think…

Enter…Bertha

Hello…people will think that it’s cold outside…the high is supposed to be sixty…with no sun in sight…people will think my blue sweater matches my eyes…people will think about a million other things…none of which pertain to my choice of clothing for the day

Of course…she says it also relates to my life as well…reminding me…that people usually have too much of their own stuff going on…to spend any time thinking about me or mine…even if I want them to

Hmmm…I know she’s right…and…as reassuring as it sounds…somehow…it doesn’t make me feel much better…I mean…really…nobody’s thinking about moi

  1. Or maybe they are thinking, look at her, she is smart and wearing the toasty sweater and I am freezing because I am afraid to wear such a nice sweater in May.

    • Why thank you, Onisha. Actually it was so cool today that I think you were absolutely correct! Glad the sun is coming out again.
