Winter Tips From a JMIT

November 19, 2008

1) Carry a tub of aquaphor around. It’s nippy out, and no one wants some chapped lips on their nippys! (Sorry, I forgot to mention that this post wasn’t PG).

No, but really. For us college gals (Me and……) it really is hard to find an outfit that’s appropriate for a party and the cold weather. So, I guess the JMIT is stumped. I’m really unsure what to do in situations like this. Obviously you can wear a coat. But then that stirs up all kinds of sanity problems. Where to put it? Can you trust leaving it on a dirty bench? What if someone steals it and you’re back at square one? Oh woe is us. So, this is your time – JMITs and JFITS (fathers in training)! Help me survive this winter! If you don’t have any tips, maybe you can sew me a cute wool dress that has a built in heater.

2) Buy snow boots. Seriously, I’m sick of people falling. Well, no not really. I’m sick of watching people fall, offering them help, them saying “no i’m fine”, and then seeing them waddle away because they broke every single vertebrae in their back. Get some traction, fools!

3) Wear layers! I mean, come on, everyone knows that once you enter into a building you’re going to need sunglasses, flip flops, and a snow cone.

4) Go sledding, ice skate, make a snowman. It’s always fun to be a kid once and a while. Then, after you’ve had your fun, trip a kid on the ice, knock down a snowman, and show these kids they have nothing to look forward to but 4 years of annoying school work and a lifetime of boring jobs.

oh man. i’m dreaming of a white christmas.

    Aquaphor — I’ll have to check this substance out. Never heard of it. But then again, I am from the midwest and am unfortunately wouldn’t qualify as a JMIT or a JFIT.

    I also should buy boots. You’re right about this.

    You mean a white hanukkah (or however it’s spelled…)?

    I would recommend ugg boots. they go *so* well with the short jean skirt and tube top.
