This morning, I walked past a young man who was wearing shorts and talking on his cell phone. I was bundled up in my winter gear and still feeling the bite of the below-freezing temperature, and walking as fast as I could to get indoors. As I passed him, I heard him say, “yeah, it’s cold here.”
Dude. It’s almost December and you’re at the North 47th parallel. Of course it’s cold here! Put on a pair of pants, fer cryin’ out loud!

Hey! I just noticed that Ekua Essoun has raised the $800 she needs for her business. If any of you invested in it because I wrote a little about it on International Women’s Day, thank you.

Update: I took Dinah‘s lead and invested some money in Ekua Essoun, a Ghanaian entrepreneur who is seeking start-up money for a produce business.
