Yale week 4 :: of sweat, LOFT orphans, and spycraft

The hottest day of the week is upon us.

And of course, I have five observations scheduled today to make up for my not doing any yesterday. I’ve tried to plot my course to take advantage of distance and amount of shade in path but I’m pretty sure I’m going to be sweating like a pig (really , do pigs sweat?) before lunch comes around. And then I plan to continue to sweat over my tray of food in the bowels of Commons. It’s a wonder I’ve not lost more weight simply from sloughing off all this water.

I probably shouldn’t have chosen to wear this outfit, then.

This top is from the LOFT. It’s several seasons old and I have never worn it because a. my old hang-up about arm wattle and b. it got erroneously catalogued then lost in the depths of the tank top section of my closet.

I’m glad I got a chance to make use of this particular orphan because it’s breezy and animal print-y and blousy, all three things near and dear to my heart. It’s also got that cunning neckline that I’ve realized is so flattering to my linebacker shoulders. It’s slightly saddening, though, that this top is now a wee bit too big on me and therefore bags more than blouses. I’m hoping a quick cycle through the dryer will mitigate this small misfortune.

Whoa! Breaking news! I just got tasked to go stake out the basement of HGS because some kids not of EXPLO were propositioning our kids. Something to do with either buying or selling alcohol. Growl. So I’ve been sent as a spy to scope things out and get more deets.

This adds an extra stop in my planned walking route and most likely an extra pound of water lost.

TMI? I apologize; it’s just that sweat has become such an all-consuming part of my life right now and I feel that the more I talk about it, the less it’ll bother me?

Yeah, right.

    I do like this outfit. Good for you for finding something else to wear. You would complain that you have nothing left and then pull out something you’ve never worn ; )

      My satchel of skills is bottomless, apparently. ;p

      I’m just gearing up for another several days of orange shirted-ness since we’re getting a new batch of kids coming in this weekend. I’m just gonna fancy it up with cute skirts, I think.

    Cute outfit! Pigs actually don’t sweat very much – that’s why they wallow in mud, it helps cool them off. Just remember that everyone else is sweaty too!

Tell me all about it! I'm listening...
