1. You hear colder than a witch’s tit in public conversations.

2. You leave your groceries on the kitchen table, come back twenty minutes later and the milk is still cold.

3. You face tingles and then goes absolutely numb.

4. Your teeth get cold with your mouth closed.

5. Ice forms on the inside of your windows.

6. Everything outside look shiny and LICKABLE.

7. You tell children not to stand under icicles b/c they could die.

8. You sit in your warm car and watch people run for things.

9. You get ice coffee every morning.

10. And at the end of every day, you thump your hands to your chest and say I AM ARTIC GIRL... I can do anything

Something that's always puzzled me about this weather --

You know how on really really cold days, sparrows will huddle together around chimneys and heating vents on houses and buildings, to keep warm?

What I don't get is -- they're BIRDS. They have WINGS. If they're cold, why don't they just FLY to someplace where it's WARMER, like other birds?

Yeah, well I have had relationships like that---I totally get it.

I used to live up north, but here in South Florida we're still in shorts and tee shirts. But...there's those damn hurricanes.

Oh, oh we could be like the Wonder Twins....artic girl powers activate;)

and Pris, I'm still wearing shorts. I'm just freezing my ass off.

Lyle Daggett said...

Well, no wonder it's freezing there. You're wearing shorts -- in the winter!

Don't get me started on those sparrows again...

early hours of sky said...

Well I'M NOT WEARING THEM OUTSIDE...short and a sweatshirt for the most part are my pjs. I do break down and put on socks though;)

Oh and Lyle are you going to Roy and Lucinda's holiday sale on Saturday, I will be there?
