It’s been unseasonably warm and dry (meaning we’ve had consecutive sunny days!) for the past month or two here in Seattle. In fact, the city is encouraging people to buy barrels to put their rain into. Direct sunlight does strange things to us.

But today was suddenly cold and wet again. And at least twice, someone remarked on it to me. “Yeah,” I replied both times, “you’d think it was still winter!”

And I got nothin’. No courtesy-laugh, no correction, nothing. I’d say these people were total “equiNOTs,” but that would be retarded of me.
