Mean to Brag

The other day I was talking to a very nice lady who had recently moved here from a much colder climate. I asked her what the temperature was there and she said 21. So, I asked her if she was going to start posting photos of how amazing and warm it is here to taunt her family and friends back home. Everybody does that, right? She said, no, she was not going to do that. She said her father had done it when he moved to South Florida years ago, and so she did not want to do the same to her friends.

So, what do you think, do you taunt your friends from back where you came from? Post pictures of yourself on the beach while they are posting pictures of themselves digging their car out of six foot snow drifts? Do you complain about how cold you are at 65, while everyone else is wearing parkas? Even in the summer do you post about our balmy 85 degree weather, while places like New York swelter at near 100 degrees? Yes, it does get warm here, but other places are much hotter.

I eventually quit doing direct taunting, after about the first three years of living here, but I do still like to post about how amazing the weather is. It’s hard not to!
