As the Autumn season pushes on and the days get shorter and shorter, it get tougher and tougher to get up and get going in the mornings. My girlfriend doesn’t know how I do it, but I do. I pry myself from the warm sheets under the heavy comforter while the rest of the world, save for the early morning anchors and the other Denver to Boulder commuters sleep. I am dedicated to making it in on time (read: early) to work after picking out the ensemble for the day. And therein lies a bit of a dilemma…
That early in the morning, as I walk to the bus station, it is colder than any other point in the day except when the sun once again sets in the eve. I don the heavy peacoat or, today, the Gant Rugger Toggle (review to come, btw), scarf, knit cap, gloves, etc, and proceed on my 20-25 minute walk downtown. Thing is, as the day grinds on, the weather warms and I find myself not needing the heavy coats as I go out to lunch, but leaving the office in just a shirt is too cold. Not that I am whining in any way as sporting the jacket and being TOO warm is always better than being TOO cold. I am just saying, it’s tough to plan accordingly. Especially out here in the mile high… you never know WHAT the hell you’ll get.
And because this morning on the bus I listened to the Black and White album cover to cover and it’s easily one of the best I’ve heard in the recent years of music, I wanted to include a picture of one of my fave bands, The Hives.
Mark your calendars. I counted down to the last day of the official 100 Days. It’ll live on far past, i’m sure.
