So. 

 

Yesterday, I had to walk the dogs with my family. It's January, of course, but for the past week, it's been in the seventies for the past week.

 

So I skip downstairs, wearing just a longsleeved shirt and a pair of jeans. Before I go outside, my mom stops me and says, "Hey. You might want to put a jacket on - it's cold out of there."

 

I'll admit it. I ignored her. But, in my defense, this is Texas. 'Cold out there' means 55 degrees. Tops. Anything colder is 'below freezing'. Anyway, I brush her off, thinking that because I'm not a native Texas, I'd be able to handle it.

 

Let me tell you, folks:

 

I. Can't. Handle. It.

 

I get halfway around the block, and I am freezing to death. And the whole time I'm walking, I'm kicking myself for not putting on a stinkin' jacket.

 

In addition to that, I'm feeling really stupid, because who am I kidding?

 

I may not have been born here, but Texas has made me a complete and total cold wimp.

 

I just can't handle it. ;)

"I. Can't. Handle. It." Hooting with laughter! Very blunt!
