is that it becomes the center of all conversation. “Stay warm,” “Cold enough for you,” and other pithy sayings are flying all over the place. I’m going to try to get through the whole day at work today without saying “cold.”
Of course there are exceptions such as “cold, hard cash” when asked what would make my job better. Or “cold war” when a discussion about the Soviet Union vs. United States space program breaks out at the old water cooler. But most importantly when asked where do I want to go for lunch — “Cold Stone Creamery.”
Wish me luck … it’s a warmth-impaired world out there.
