The reason I hate winter… No, it isn’t the snow. I can handle the snow as long as I don’t have to be out in it. It isn’t the dreary skies. I can handle that with an extra touch of Vitamin D. It isn’t the stupid drivers out on the road. I take back roads if I think that it is going to be dangerous.
No, the reason I hate winter is the dang COLD! I don’t know if other people outside of my family get this way but, once I get cold it is nearly impossible for me to warm up. I can layer until I am as wide as I am tall and it won’t make any difference. Sometimes, on rare occasions, I am able to get it to go away with hot cocoa. In reality though, just about the only way that I can warm up is to stop what I am doing and take a hot shower.
I am not alone in this predicament. I have so generously passed this gene onto my little fairy princess. She understandably has a much better reason to be constantly freezing see as how her BMI must be around 0.002. So, we trade off… during the winter we have a huge water bill, lots of dry skin, use up gallons of lotion but, we stay warm!
