when i was a kid, i was completely cold tolerant. shorts and bare feet when there was frost on the ground. somewhere along the way - when my thyroid got screwed up, maybe? maybe earlier? i don't know, it was hard to notice - i turned into someone who hated cold. hatehatehate. i dreaded winter. i adored summer. the year we lived in Utah, i was in rapture during the summer - upper 90s, no humidity - and miserable during the winter. the winter there is one of the reasons why i left the state.
i still hate winter, but damn, this heat's got to go, too.
