As we move through February, the days will get longer and temperatures will start to creep up.  This means that blanket scarf season is slipping away as quickly as it came. I know you're all thinking of the question that naturally follows the news that blanket scarf szn is ending: where will I hide my face now when I feel uncomfortable?

No need to worry, you introvert you.  There are plenty of ways to hide your face that don't involve cold weather apparel.

1. Glasses: The sun kind or the regular kind will work.  This method is my favorite socially acceptable defense mechanism.

2. Umbrella: Following blanket scarf szn is the rainy szn, the perfect time to use an umbrella.  Also fairly acceptable to use when it's sunny if you don't mind looking like a tourist.

3.  An actual blanket: Pull a total Linus (from Peanuts) by toting a full blanket around with you.  It doesn't matter that you are 20 years old. If someone questions you, just tell them you have a fever.

4. A ghost costume: There is no better way to say, "don't look at my fucking face" than just covering your entire body with a white sheet.  Bonus points if you wear sunglasses over the sheet, combining my favorite two defense mechanisms.
