It’s The Most Wonderful Time To Be Strangled By Your Scarves

20 Oct

On the one hand, I love winter. It’s my favorite season when I’m at home in the country, where I can look out at the yard covered in a pristine blanket of fluffy white snow, wrapped up in my panda-print footy pajamas, drinking mint tea and reading Tolkien. (Wow, was that specific or what?)

On the other hand, when you have to actually go out in the bitter cold, you are faced with what is possibly the worst part of winter: ineffective scarves which strangle you without even keeping your nose warm.

Perhaps that’s my biggest beef with scarves. One would imagine that somebody would have invented by now something that keeps your nose warm, without making you look like a robber or fogging up your glasses. If there’s some invention out there that I’ve missed, by all means I beg you enlighten me, because it’s miserable having a cold nose on long walks to campus at three in the morning.
