Me too, sorta! It only got up to 81 today, so I'm wearing sweats and a flannel shirt.

Micro Mag, green Photon, chapstick, Casio ToughSolar ABC watch, and specs. Oh, and my super-duper fancy Tracfone smartphone phone.

There is some other stuff nearby.

I use my phone to take notes when needed. Note that there are additional items in my home, my vehicle, and my office, and that I usually am outside of those three places for a total of approximately twenty minutes daily -- only walking from the subterranean parking garage to my office and getting take-out lunch. Although I wish I could carry during that time, I'm close enough to my office and vehicle that I'm OK with the risk . . .

Since I'm at work and in uniform - I am required to be defenseless. The only thing I have on me is a Benchmade Mel Pardue folder that I am sure will be classified as an "assault-weapon" when the bliss-ninnies running this Army get around to it.

I am however fully SHARP certified and qualified. Working on my resiliency as well. At least when I get shot for lack of shooting back I can be resilient about it.

unprepared in scrubs ... but since I am in my office, the 9mm is within my reach in the gunvault in less time than it took to type this.

Added a Leatherman Squirt PS4 today. It's smaller than a tube of Chapstick.

When I go out the door wearing sweats or elastic waist banded shorts, I carry my wife's .38spl LCR in a Remora holster (the .45 USP and Crossbreed pull my pants down ).
