February Writing Challenge: Day Three
Day three (yes, I know it’s the 5th – what are ya gonna do?) asks me to write about the cold and how it makes me feel. As I stated in the previous day of how winter makes me feel after Christmas – I do not like the cold.
Last week during New York’s blizzard, I endured -30-degree windchill which is basically like getting slapped by the air anytime I go outside. For me, that’s just disgusting. The air, the thing I need to live, shouldn’t also cause my face to form a rash after being outside for two-minutes. Not to mention being a dog parent when your dog refuses to go outside because it’s too cold but also refuses to go to the bathroom inside on a puppy pad because she thinks she’ll get in trouble for going potty inside is exhausting. It’s also exhausting when I finally get my dog to go to the bathroom (so her bladder doesn’t explode), but then I get dog-mom-shamed for my dog being outside. (deep breath in, deep breath out).
So, I think it’s safe to say that I don’t like the cold, I think getting all dressed up in jackets and scarves and gloves in not only inconvenient, but it’s also time-consuming. I’m a “sleep until the last possible second before work” type of person, so when I’m already running late but I also have to spend 15 minutes defrosting my car it adds a lot of stress.
Rosalie, just wake up earlier so that isn’t an issue. Replies everyone.
Yes, thank you, that’s a marvelous idea; but it’s never going to happen. I am a professional at making life harder than it needs to be.
I’m more of a 70-degree person. That is my perfect temperature. It’s not too hot, not too cold and quite honestly, I’m my happiest during Fall and Spring when that temperature is most common.
If you’re following along with me on this challenge, how does the cold make you feel? I’m interested to hear your thoughts, and if you live in an area that’s never cold, do you sometimes wish it was?
