Overalls

Today is a half day. We leave at one. And just like any day before a holiday, that pretty much means no work at all. Today I woke up, removed my ass from the wonderfully mild, air-conditioned bedroom and put it beneath a wonderfully lukewarm shower. Our loft is very large. (Very). And so using and air-conditioner for the large room is not an option. And so even before grabbing the towel, I was sweating again. I am not complaining, unlike the majority of New Yorkers, I happen to like the heat. (Yes, I am freakish). Thing is, I like the heat if I am able to dress to compliment it. So today, being half day and all, and that it basically resembles the hottest caverns in hell, I wore what I wanted. I wore overalls. I have received two comments. One of them was,

Damn girl, who’re you trying to be, Daisy fuckin Duke?!

(Fitting coming from a building manager named Cowboy). And the other was,

Michele, what in the hell do you have on?

But you know what, I don’t care. I’m comfortable and I leave today at 1 in a rented car. And me and my overalls will paint the town pink.

  8. Apparently Cowboy has not recently had his fill of The Dukes of Hazzard—I do believe that Daisy Duke has never worn a pair of full length overalls.
