Too much warmth

This seems pretty indisputable:

Oklahoma summers are hot and sticky and everything about them is the absolute worst. I didn’t always hate them. I used to actually love the heat, and spent about 10 years of my life playing competitive fast pitch softball in the summer heat. Hell, I remember playing in tournaments that were canceled because other girls literally died of heat stroke while standing in the outfield, and I wasn’t particularly phased by the heat at the time.

But that was when I could wear my sleeveless jersey and shorts all day. Now, I may not be outside all day, but I have to wear some business casual garb, and I would like to know what asshole decided that all business casual clothing should be made of the most unbreathable fabrics, because that person should be swaddled in a pair of modern-fit trousers and left out in the sun to slowly desiccate into the raisin they deserve to be.

    I think also age has something to do with it. When I was an under-12, the heat didn’t bother me NEARLY so much (granted, that was also in Ohio, where “hot” meant 85 degrees, not 110). But as a so-post-pubertal-she’s-going-the-other-direction woman, I LOATHE heat. Humidity is worse than heat, though.

    And I work a job where most days I can wear a thin little cotton dress and sandals, and where the buildings are – most of the time – air conditioned.

    Our correspondent here is thirtyish. But you can hate the heat at any age.

    Well, I do agree it’s worse for men: having to wear dress slacks, having to wear heavy knit polos (or sometimes even ties and suit coats).
