Yesterday, I googled “Imperial Valley weather.” I just wanted to know what I was up against. I was surprised that the highs were just a little over 100. There were even some little rain clouds. I thought, “This can’t be right?” I glanced up, and sure enough, I was looking at Imperial Valley, Texas. I googled “Imperial, CA” and braced myself.
My first thought: I need to get some shorts.
Now, I’ve never liked my legs. Don’t get me wrong, they’re very functional, but definitely not my favorite feature. I own a few pairs of shorts, mostly basketball shorts that I wear around the house, nothing that I could even go to Wal-Mart in, and that’s saying a lot.
After work yesterday, Tyson and I went to our little Cache Valley Mall in search of some modest shorts. I don’t want to say that it’s impossible to find modest clothes during the summer, but I will say that it’s easier to thread a needle in the dark.
We finally found some pink shorts at JcPenney. They were $10, my size, and didn’t look like underwear. I snatched them up, tears in my eyes, and walked triumphantly to the cash register.
I’m not going to lie, I mostly just put this picture up here so I could casually mention that I once
ran walked a 5K with Tyson. Please be impressed.
