Friday Poll

A conversation I had with Sonia today got me thinking...

How hot does it have to be for you to put on shorts?

For me, it's gotta be about 80 degrees (27C). I'm a native Southern Californian, and to my delicate constitution, 60 degrees(15C) is cold. Although it's gotta work the other way, right? I mean, I have to be more heat tolerant than people used to colder climates. There's gotta be an upside to it somewhere.

Probably about 70 or not much more, silly Canadian that I am.

Probably in the 70-ish range for me, a transplanted native Floridian.

I'm a native Californian so I'm sorta used to the heat. I'd say it would have to be in the 90's and I'd likely have to go buy a pair to fit my expanding thighs.. Seeing as I'm lazy with the shopping, It would probably be multiple days of 90+ heat to get me into the store.

Like I told you on the phone, 60 is good enough for me because the past few days of 40s have been a HEAT wave here!!!

Your blood is thin. I pity your wimpyness. *snort*

Dot doesn't do shorts. But she will wear capris in 64 degrees or up. And flip flops. Dot's blood must be thick like the rest of her.

The problem for me is my house is always at least 10 degrees cooler than it is outside. So it's got to be really, really hot outside for me to go with shorts. (We're talking 85'ish.) That's not to say I won't put on shorts when I'm going to leave this draft-ridden home for an extended period of time. Let's say that if it's 75 outside and I'm going out, shorts it is.

P.S. I'm so proud of myself for getting to your Friday poll on FRIDAY!

I live in your area, but I'll put the shorts on at 63 degrees if the occasion calls for it. I tend to run warm anyway, but I am most comfy in shorts and bare feet. If my torso gets cold, I'll wear a sweatshirt.

80 degrees is as hot as it ever should be. I don't like the temp to go above that.

It has to be pretty dang hot because I hate showing off my lily white legs and I also hate having to shave said legs.

Kelley said...

I NEVER wear shorts.

But today I relaxed the rule. considering it was 46C/115F!

Liz said...

About 75ish.

I'll do capris over 85, but otherwise, I wear jeans mostly.

I've been know to go outside in shorts when it's in the 30's, although only long enough to bring the newspaper in the house...

Laurie said...

I'm with you, it has to be at least 80 or I freeze in shorts. That plus I hate to scare the natives...

Found your blog on the OC Register. I'm late but I'll join the poll... I hate the way I look in shorts so my answer is NEVER... a skirt on the other hand... I wear all the time. If it's cold I just throw jeans on under them!
