A Day at the Beach

There comes a point in time every Winter when I say enough is enough
and start dressing for the season I want it to be, Spring.
As February winds down I have been gravitating towards bright colors,
though I don't think my coworkers are ready for that much poppy red just yet.

On Sunday, I suggested that we drive out to the beach,
very much aware that it would be terribly windy and not very warm.
We wouldn't be able to stand it for very long.

But as I walked across the sand I thought of how come July,
I'll think of a cold day like this as the soles of my feet burn on the hot sand
and the sun beats down on my back without the slightest sea breeze for relief
and wish, for just a second, that it would be cold again, like it is today.

So I pulled my hair back into a low bun and put on my big Tom Ford sunglasses, 
wrapped a scarf around my neck, and asked JD if I looked like Grace Kelly.
A girl can dream, right?
