I may have left my heart in San Francisco, but this morning I discovered that I´d left my thermal underwear in Halifax.
Here is a mystery: why is it that Canada, of all places, manages to design a pair of thermal undies that are only comfortable when you wear them BACKWARDS!?
Yes, Canada. Land of horrendously cold winters ever year and populated by Europeans for four hundred years. Why, in all of this time and with all that practice haven´t you made thermal undies that are comfy the RIGHT WAY ROUND?!?!
They even fit better when I put them on back to front.
And that´s when I had one of those too-many-drinks moments of revelation or existential dread.
Maybe they fit so well because that is the way you´re meant to wear them.
And that means I´ve been wearing undies the wrong way round for MY ENTIRE LIFE!
And nobody´s told me, because it´s something you just work out.
And that way lies madness.
