I think I may be turning into a Grumpy Old Man but I was baffled today by a group of my female students.
They were wearing one of the current fashions here- short shorts- standing outside and complaining about being cold.
Did I mention the shorts?
bigozzy, here in Canada, I discovered several years ago that a company actually designed, produced and brought to sale "crop parkas". Yes - heavily padded jackets that stop just at the ribcage, leaving the rest of the midriff exposed. I learned this because a young woman across from me at the airport was wearing one.
She was also wearing a crop shirt and lowrise jeans, so about 10 inches of bare, goosepimpled flesh was visible.
It was January. In Canada. It was -5 C, with what Canadians call a "nippy wind". She did not apparently connect her wardrobe choice to her lack of comfort. The mind boggles.
