Man Wearing Shorts in November Shocked You Didn’t Ask if He’s Cold
CHESTNUT HILL 一 Despite the unsettling Halloween heatwave this past weekend, the temperature on campus has taken a turn as winter approaches. Some students are more content with this shift than others; we are only a few degrees away from Canada Goose and Moncler season. However, there are a few holdouts who remain staunch in their decision to ignore Mother Nature and strut their best July garb.
One of these holdouts, Anders Larsson (CSOM ’25), was shocked that not one person stopped to ask him if he was cold on his way to Financial Accounting yesterday. Donning 7-inch inseam chinos and the gifted polo he got from his internship at Liberty Mutual this summer, Larsson was expecting (and hoping) that at least one person would tell him he’s crazy for going out in 40-degree weather in shorts.
“Just wait until Christmas. I’ve got these great Santa Claus board shorts I’ve been dying to break out,” Larsson said. “I guess I’m just used to the cold. You Bostonians haven’t seen a real winter until you’ve been to the great white North. Ice is in my blood.” Larrson later clarified he was referring to a suburb of Minneapolis.
“He keeps scoffing at me for wearing a jacket,” commented Jackie Miller (MCAS ’25), a classmate of Larsson’s. “He told me I dress for fall like a ‘typical Californian’, but I keep telling him that I’m from Waltham.”
At press time, Larsson was seen stretching his barren legs into popular walkways, yearning for gasps and guffaws.
