Shorts Day

In honor of the upcoming holiday, my office is closing at 3pm today. Yay, a short day!! Not just a short day, but a Shorts Day: the management has kindly relaxed the dress code for today, and we are allowed to wear shorts.

Unfortunately, the office is still at its normal near-freezing temperature.

In the past, we have had occasional "shorts for a dollar" fundraisers. I usually participate in these: I pay my dollar to charity and come into work wearing shorts, sandals, and a t-shirt. It's great for the trips to and from work, and it's wonderful at lunchtime....but otherwise I shiver all day. My legs get goosebumps.

Is this really an employee benefit? Hypothermia?? Of course not everybody in the office is as cold-blooded as I am, but still. This place is generally way too air-conditioned to be comfortable in summer clothing.

Today I decided not to suffer the cold, and I am wearing jeans. However, to take advantage of my employer's goodwill, I decided to abuse the dress code in other ways. I am wearing my (long-sleeved!) Hard Rock Cafe shirt, since we are generally not allowed to wear any t-shirts or clothes with emblems on them. I also have a cute Woodstock t-shirt on underneath, just in case it gets a little warmer in here.

So far I haven't needed it, but it will be nice when I got out for lunch. It's summer outside, even if it is chilly in here.
