As the temperatures rose during our quarantine/lockdown it became apparent—for some reason— that clothing options for the hot FIRE season could be anything I chose for the moment. More specifically, there were very, very limited activities outside the home requiring full public dressing.
The interesting item of clothing seemed to be the “zoom shirt” required for zoom video conferences. Now, since I don’t work, this wasn’t a big deal. Yet, I still had to find presentable shirts for zoom calls that I chose to attend. The good news was that any random pair of shorts worked fine, even if I had to get out of the chair and leave the room while on camera most shorts seemed acceptable
Much of my day required clothing that was acceptable for intermittent pool-dunks to cool off and splash around.
Apparently one day I was wearing a more-discombobulated collection of clothing that prompted my wife to ask “what are you wearing now?” My answer was simply “my summattire.”
Of course, after decades of living with me, my wife often just shakes her head and walks away. I’m assuming she realized that my selection was fully applicable to the situation of the day. But, as I type this, I’m wondering if her actions were based on my clothing or my newly crafted word?
My point in this post is simple: sometimes when you are living the great life, things just fall into place in the manner they were meant to be: no rules, no judgment, at least internally. Let your summer loose.
