Day 19: Warm, Idle Dreams

Violetta had always wanted to live someplace warm. New York City was frigid. The newscaster came over the radio predicting snow and subzero temperatures for the third day in a row, and Violetta grabbed an extra scarf. Three layers of woolen tights beneath her skirt, four sweaters, an overcoat, ski gloves, a fuzzy hat, and now two scarves. Some day, she thought, dashing out the door to work. Some day I will live where sundresses can be worn year round. 

Little did she know that would never happen.
