Okay, I am still laughing from this one....because it is SO TRUE! When I first met Jake I would see him running from our dorm building to the commons (across an outdoor, open walkway) in cutoff t-shirts during the middle of January. He also didn't own a winter coat. Minnesotians are a different breed! :)
