Words I Realized: Tallast

tallast [tal-uhst], n – gusts of air conditioning felt while passing a store with open doors

I don’t think any store on the planet is cooled as sufficiently as this particular Bloomingdale’s.  I’ve never actually been inside, but every time I pass it on a hot summer day, my nipples get as hard as Chinese math.  The only logical conclusion I can come to is that the first floor also doubles as a meat locker.   A one-stop-shop for Dolce & Gabbana perfume and premium dry aged ribeye.

When Reggie stopped in front of the Carl’s Jr to enjoy the fresh, cool tallast that was escaping through the open doorway, a homeless Asian man asked him for a nickel.

Wait, tallast?? I don’t get it… Can you explain?

    I just experienced a wonderful tallast this morning in fact. These tourist souvenir shops near Empire State Building keep it a brisk 52 degrees to entice the tourists to get out of the heat.
