On Sunday, C. and I went for a walk around the neighborhood to enjoy the brief hours of sunshine before the Superbowl. I've come to really like watching sports, especially after playing intramural football in college, which was equally competitive and fun, but yesterday grad student voice* won out and I half-worked while we watched. This jacket has become my new exoskeleton--it's just the right weight for fake winter in DC--because I've barely taken it off in the past week. If wearing the same jacket fifteen days running is wrong, then I don't want to be right.
*You know Grad Student Voice, it's the one that says, "you could be working right now" or "I bet insert X colleague name is working right now." It takes no notice of professional sports schedules, your social life, or your mental health in the name of its mission. Most of the time, I can shut it up with a beer but I'm weakened by the length of my current to-do list.
