“Jesus, where the hell did this come from?”
With the beginning of June comes the start of Winter, internationally known as the cold season. Despite this common knowledge, majority of Australians are shocked out of their minds that it’s no longer warm.
“It was only a couple of weeks ago I was going to the beach,” exclaimed angry Sydneysider Terry MacKay, who hasn’t been to the beach since January. “Now I’m freezing my nuts off!”
The man then disintegrated into unintelligible ramblings, but his main point was that he’s outraged he now has to wear a jumper AND a coat.
Terry, like most Australians, suffers from a condition known as Seasonal Amnesia. This is a disorder where we forget what life is like in any season other than the one we’ve just been through. It’s only been a year since he donned his thick woollen coat, but from his facial expression it might as well be some kind of foreign ceremonial dress worn for coming-of-age ceremonies that involve branding irons and human sacrifice.
In a matter of months, he’ll be looking just as curiously disgusted at a singlet. We, for one, can’t wait.
