it's the wonderful time of year where temperatures start flirting with subzero. and if you can put mr/dr/the in front of a word and it sounds like a supervillian, you know it's bad. the wrath of mr subzero! so bad, your breath turns to smoke and your skin goes cold.
there was a time when this bitter chill had no apparent effect on me. when not wearing a hat was "cool" and looked real good with an unzipped jacket. i think it was my jr high to early HS years. i can't remember ever being cold back then, just cool. or at least trying to be cool.
but these days i'm just trying to not be cold. scarves, hats, mittens, big coats with faux fur. gap has taught me how to layer. but it can't keep me warm like back in the day. when i never felt cold. i must have more feelings now. feelings that i can't even feel because i'm so cold.
