It shouldn't surprise me, but every time I'm in a hurry and I have to dig into my pockets to get my keys I refuse to take my gloves off. Somehow I repeatedly convince myself that I can retrieve my keys without removing my glove. This happens every time. I'm loathe to expose my hand to the bitter chill, so I leave my gloves on and stubbornly dig a finger or two into my pocket in hopes of excavating the loot, but it never works. Oh, I get a finger or two to touch the keys, but that's just a finger tease. As soon as I attempt to plunge my entire gloved hand in for the job I am met with an unwelcoming pocket opening. I think maybe once I accomplished this maddening feat and so I subconsciously feel compelled to repeat that past success. But it hasn't happened in a long, long time and I keep trying.
Am I just a thoughtless creature of stubborn habits? Am I overly optimistic? Am I painfully scared of a little cold air?
Sometimes I am just mind-boggling to myself.
