Man, March is such a weirdo. I was on a 2-mile (had to throw that in there in case any of you who don’t walk two miles would be totally impressed with me. but if you’re more like a 10-mile walker, ignore. and stop laughing.) with my dog today and I was in and out and in and out of being chilly and warm and chilly and warm and warm and chilly.
Hey March? I have an idea: WARM.
