Though we walk reallllly slow, it doesn’t take much to get us breathless. When walking with others, they can easily leave you and not realize it until they turn around to say something to you and you’re half a block back.
We have to stop and pretend to do something, like look for an imaginary dropped item, while we steal a moment to catch our breath.
Of course, when we are comfortable enough around good friends, we are just honest. “Girl, you are walking too fast, and this fat chick can’t keep up.” or “I gotta stop a minute. You can go on if you want to.”
And we’re always hot! Always weather-wise, and sometimes otherwise. J
