Don't get me wrong. I'm all for saving the polar bears and frowning on climate change and such, but if global warming means that I can wear shorts in October, hey, I'll take it. The only thing about wearing shorts during this season is that you're fine in the afternoon, but it's freezing cold in the morning and the night. I tried wearing long pants the other day to stay on the safe side, but I ended up getting mad at myself for unnecessarily wearing pants in the warmth. Canada has two seasons: winter and construction. It's still construction season, so I'm going to take advantage of shorts until winter really nears.
