How cold is it?
It is so cold, the politicians have their hands in their own pockets! -- Johnny Carson
It is a cold, cold morning here. Our low of 10 set a record this morning, but the windchill is 8 below. Yikes! I'm trying to avoid going out today, but my son must be picked up from school and we're in need of groceries.
I'm a guest blogger over at Losing the Baby Weight today. One commenter wrote about how, as a teenager, her mother would warn her not to touch the thermostat. What's funny is that my mom had this rule, too. I wonder why? I mean, obviously it had to do with the heating bill, but what else? Is this a secret code for parents of teens? As in, "if you touch the thermostat, I'll know, so imagine what other, more important things I find out about." Or, is the thermostat a euphemism for a penis? "Don't touch that boy's penis, or I'll KNOW!"
Yes, the evil laugh. Because moms were just out to ruin our lives and make us cold back in those days.
