Wishful wardrobing was in full effect today at the Scarecrow Festival and Car Show in Madison. "Wishful wardrobing" is a term I've coined to describe those Mississippians who just insist on putting the summer clothes away before it's time. (It's the end of October, damnit, it's supposed to be time for turtleneck sweaters and boots and jackets. Who cares if it's 88 degrees outside?) Boots, jeans and sweaters everywhere today...and it's just too damn hot.
I want cool weather here as much as the next person, but I just refuse to sweat it out in boots and jeans until then!
(The little-old-lady crowd is especially known for wishful wardrobing on Sundays for church. The fur coats will start breaking out as soon as it drops to a low of 60 around here!)
