I stubbornly wore jean shorts a few days ago when it was deceptively sunny yet undoubtedly cold. A lady at the coop took one look at me and remarked that I was “optimistic”. And that Friends, is the core value inherent in every pair of jean shorts. Optimism that the warm weather will hold. That your legs are not, in fact too pallid from the NINE MONTHS of Minnesota winter. That you will not be unexpectedly required anywhere with a dress code in the foreseeable future. That maybe there will be a campfire soon or porch with beers on it.
Jean Shorts. Optimism. America. C
