Life with 'song and Adam

Zoe & Wash - by kylakae
I am so freezing cold that I have stopped getting done the stuff that requires me to budge from my desk, and am huddled in my chair shivering in my flannel pjs.

He is in a t-shirt and underpants.

WHAT.

Ain't that always the way? I'm chuckling, but in commiseration. I was the warm one with Alicia, too. Dad's the warm one with Mom.

Here. A nuclear explosion'll keep you warm. Barring that, use this as an excuse to snuggle with Adam. You know you like that.

This was not dissimilar to the situation when browngirl and I lived together. She used to call me "Nordic Boy" because I could run around shirtless in what she thought of as a freezing-cold apartment. (We had no control over the thermostat, IIRC, since the heat was rolled into the rent.)

Same thing happens in this house. That's why I say, "Hello, my dear radiator! Please come hug me so I don't lose a limb to frostbite."

That's my Adam, too. His base core temperature is almost 100 degrees Fahrenheit. All the time. And here I am, shivering so hard my teeth are chattering, and he stares at me and asks, "Wow, you're cold?"

My boyfriend can be like that sometimes, too, but we both detest the cold weather so we both bundle up a bit. I'm still a bit more sensitive, being from S.E. Asia and just, literally, not built for Midwestern fall and winter. *sigh*

Jack and I are quite opposites with temperature, too. I'll be shivering outside in a coat, while he just has an extra shirt on, and he'll turn to me and say, "What? It's perfectly clement."

Laughing. In that oh yes, I have so been in that same situation, kind of way.

What is with the cold girls who love human space heaters?

I got the worst ends of my parents' thermostats. My dad was only truly happy when it was 50 degrees out, my mom is always too cold, and I am only happy when the temperature is somewhere between 75-85.

The Boy, on the other hand, is loving the weather.

There are times my wife is bundled in blankets and a nightgown while I'm not wearing anywhere near as much*.

*aka my glasses

As a note, I've noticed I'm FAR more susceptible to cold since going gluten free. I asked my doctor about it, and she said she wasn't a nutritionist, but she was rather sure that the lower amount of easy-burning wheat (noodles, etc) carbs for heat probably contributes.

That is usually the case with me and N. I am huddled under two blankets on the couch wearing a flannel robe and can't move from cold, and he's not even wearing a sweater.

I understand. Boy, do I understand. I am generally cold ALL OF THE TIME. In the summer, the air conditioning is on too much for me. In the winter, the heat is not on enough.
