Dear young lady who appears to be suffering from heat in both a literal and figurative sense, I’m not mad at you. I want to put my arm around your shoulders and give you a friendly squeeze. The truth is that I see a bit of my younger self in you. While some of our fellow classmates may whisper behind upheld palms or shake their heads in disapproval, I know exactly where you’re coming from. I know why you chose today’s fashion ensemble despite the cool temperatures predicted in today‘s forecast. I know why your butt cheeks are barely covered by your shorts. I know why you felt comfortable enough wearing that get-up to school.
