than a gust of wind so strong it propels your forward, almost tips you sideways, makes you feel like you’ll fly away.
Windy days make me feel like a petite ballerina again!
But on the flip side it is so bitterly cold and windy I’m finding it hard to breathe every time I’m outside. Wind like this reminds me of the first time I was on a motorcycle. I was SO nervous and was concentrating very hard on the instruction Motorcycle Rebel was giving me, when we all the sudden began jetting down Lawrence Road. He was really only going 30 miles per hour but that feels so much faster when you’re not inside a big green mini van. The wind was flying in my face with such force I felt like I couldn’t inhale no matter how hard I tired. There was just too much air bombarding my terrified face. I was also way too scared to pry one my hands from around his waist to pull the plastic visor of my helmet down. I thought I would die before we got to the stoplight. Good times.
I couldn’t find my gloves this morning while I was getting ready and because I’m ridiculous and feel I need to be on time ALWAYS I decided I could go the day without them.
I was on time to class but my hands are going to detach themselves and run away and find another owner who isn’t an idiot.
I went to the university store on my break thinking I could pick up a pair of gloves and survive the rest of the day. I also thought I could also maybe get one of those little headband ear warmer things for my poor unprotected adorable ears.
Ear-headband thing: 22 dollars.
22 dollars. TWENTY TWO.
I thought,oh well my ears will be fine.
I picked up a pair of cheapy gloves. You know the kind you get for 3 bucks at Walgreens? Not the kind that are attractive and made of real wool. Not the kind that even have the little grippy bumps on them. Just the plain cotton/spandex/polyester whatever blend kind. The kind that don’t even really work that well but are better than nothing.
http://www.missmomo.com/magic-glove-white.html I’m talking about THESE GLOVES.
These gloves ladies and gentlemen, with my University’s mascot on them, were a whopping SIXTEEN DOLLARS. Nearly 20 bucks. For a pair of shitty gloves.I guess Sam the Minuteman’s Ugly mug gracing the fabric shoots the price up about 13 dollars. How reasonable.
I did not buy them.
I am cold.
