Do you have a sun burn? Mosquito bites? Are you suffering through sleepless nights because it's too hot to sleep and no one in SF has air conditioning? Like Leia's plea to Obi Wan Konobi, locals are begging Karl, our resident anthropomorphized fog, to return back to the Bay Area. Because without him, we'll be reduced to puddles of freckles and sweat.
In these sunny, trying times, you need a reminder that your friend the fog is just a few days away. Perhaps that's why The Bold Italic has released a new tote bag with the folks from San Franpsycho touting the fog as the real hero of our city. Remember: When the rest of the country was suffering through a heat wave, the fog kept you comfortable in August. When you caught a pre-workday run this morning before the temperatures soared, the fog had you covered. Friends and lovers come and go, but San Franciscans can take comfort in carrying the message that our fog is (mostly) here to stay.
