Winter, spring, summer or fall…I’m wearing shorts.
I friggin’ HATE pants.
I think I have three pairs of pants and one pair of jeans and I might wear pants once or twice a year.
Other than that, I’m ALWAYS rocking shorts. When I’m on the Harley. When I’m interviewing rock stars. Even on NYE when I’m poppin’ bottles!
To be perfectly honest, I don’t really know when I started wearing shorts on a daily basis instead of pants, but it was likely in high school.
I have stubby legs. So I have to buy pants that are a 30 in length or shorter. And every time I buy a pair of pants, they never seem to be short enough in the legs and I end up walking on the bottom cuff.
And that drives me absolutely BONKERS!
Can’t stand it.
So, I only wear shorts now to prevent that from happening. Plus, I like being chilly. I keep the temp in my house at 64° during the winter and if I wasn’t married & didn’t have dogs, it’d be even colder.
Occasionally, I will put pants on, but it’s a rarity. And it usually has nothing to do with the weather.
When it snowed about two weekends ago and it was barely above 0° outside, I did put on some sweatpants when I went outside to shovel. But I was right back into my shorts when I got done.
A recent survey asked people to give the lowest temperature they thought was warm enough to wear shorts.
The most common answer was between 61° – 70° with 25% of the vote.
Damn, dude. Why even bother if you’re waiting until it’s friggin’ 70°?
The second most popular answer was between 71° and 80°.
Did they only interview senior citizens for this?
Ugh…if I was wearing pants in 80° weather, I’d be DYING!
Only 8% of people say 41° – 50° is shorts weather, and another 6% say they’ll wear shorts when it’s between 31° & 40°.
And there’s my people. The 4% who’ll wear shorts outside when it’s below 20°.
Men are more likely to wear shorts in the colder temps, and women hold out until it’s much warmer.
And yes, I’ve seen this meme about a bazillion times. Thank you for thinking about me whenever it pops up in your timeline.
