Death by Exposure

Death by Exposure

I live in what is erroneously termed the Temperate Climate Zone. This winter’s weather particularly lacks temperance. Perhaps it has been drinking? It probably has and it has mistakenly come to believe that this is Siberia. This winter I’m freezing so much that no amount of vodka can possibly keep me warm.

I cancelled all appointments requiring me to set my foot outdoors. I refuse to go to work and have set up a home office. I have installed at my desk a barricade made up from heating devices. I stopped feeling embarrassed for wearing fingerless knitted gloves indoors. If I won’t last till spring, let it be known that I told you so.

Is it me or are you freezing to death too?
