You see I work in an old building. One side, my side, is always in the shade, or the air conditioner works better, or something. Either way, it is always
Too Cold freezing.
Poor Hubby, who is already hot-natured (get your dirty minds out of the gutter! Or is that just me?!), works in what we call The Fishbowl. This room is almost all windows and is always a good 10-15 degrees warmer than anywhere else in the building. For him the building is always Too Hot.
The designers and engineers work in the middle of the building where apparently the temperature is Just Right. They are the ones who make the magic, so they have to be happy.

I've already gotten several sunburns from sticking my arm out the window trying to wave in cooler air (this does not work when you're stuck in rush hour traffic next to a semi by the way!). I would love to be able to wear a bikini or better yet, nothing at all, but... I've decided that is just not a good idea!

Well how about these cool Pistachio Polka dots. They're a little more sophisticated, if not subtle.
Multi-colored art? Again, not subtle, but we're a design studio so this should be good right?
You know what?! There just isn't a way to make the Snuggie look sophisticated and professional. Guess I'm just going to have to go with Plan B.
