19 Things That Happen On The First Sunny Day Of The Year In Scotland
Monday: Winter. Tuesday: Winter. Wednesday: Winter. Thursday: 20°C FUCKING ROASTING GET THE BBQ OUT PURE RAPID. Friday: Winter.
At first, you really won't be able to believe that it's actually quite warm outside.
At least five people you know will take a photo of the sky and put on on Snapchat or Twitter.
And your dad's cousin's friend who has a convertible will spaff photos all over your FB feed.
Every single man in Glasgow will take off his shirt.
You won't be sure whether you can actually trust the weather at all.
So you'll stress over whether to take wellies, a coat, and an umbrella with you "just in case."
And you don't want to change your plans too much, in case it starts hailing four minutes later.
You have to make some very quick decisions about your peely-wally winter body, too.
Should you really waste time shaving or using fake tan? Remember that one time you went to buy some Veet and it started snowing again before you got home? So risky.
You won't be able to find any of your summer clothes either, so you'll have to improvise.
Which can lead to some seriously fucking weird tan lines.
You weren't expecting it to be sunny so soon, so your garden looks a wee bit shite.
And there's no way you've been organised enough to buy garden furniture, so you make do.
People without a garden will indulge in the age-old Scottish sport of hanging oot the windae.
Or go to an incredibly packed park to drink Dark Fruits with 104,902 other Scots.
And all the beaches get more crowded than anything you'll find in the Costa del Sol.
Your pals will insist on sitting outside at pubs and cafés, even though it's not really that hot.
After a few drinks you'll think "fuck it, let's try and have a barbecue!"
Everyone will get very drunk.
And then it will start snowing again.
