Dear Chelise from Three Years Ago,
Remember when you were so excited to buy your first "winter coat" and you found this classic trench on killer sale? And you didn't think it was fishy that a "winter coat" would be on clearance right before winter? And the other teachers at school laughed when you showed them your new "winter coat"? And remember you wore it walking around downtown Chicago in below zero wind chill weather and about froze to death?
Oh, you have so much to learn about midwest winters, Chelise of 2005.
Sincerely, Chelise of the Future
It is only October and I am already staring down my last Iowa winter in the face and laughing.
