Koozie Central Blog Day 21:
I cannot tell you how often people ask me how I can possibly work, I mean seriously work in a climate like Panama. The sun shines every day (especially during the summer months), the weather is warm, it’s tough to find a reason NOT to go to the pool or beach. Funny enough, I never could come up with a concrete answer. I always just kind of shrugged my shoulders and responded with the generic “Oh, you know… cause I like personalized koozies (huh?!?!!)”
Being in Denver in the middle of some record low temperatures and winter weather (schools are closed for goodness sake!), I now finally have my answer. My crazy little body has, for some reason, had difficult time adjusting to the time change. I have consistently woken up at 8 am since arriving in Colorado about 4 days ago (6am local time). This is ordinarily late for me, but as we’ve been “enjoying ourselves” quite a bit, this is totally on par.
The Glaring Reasons
6 am in Denver, CO looks like:
Dark – maybe the sun is starting to eek up, cold (yes, it LOOKS cold), scraping car windows, snow and/or slush, chilly bathroom tiles, cold fingers, many layers of clothes, packing a bag to go to the gym before work and traffic
6am in Panama City, Panama:
Sun has just risen, dew on the grass, bright sunshine, a cool 80 degrees, palm trees, going for a run along the bay, shorts and a t-shirt, walking to work no matter the time of year.
