You know, one of the saddest dieting advice I ever read (and they’re usually pretty glum), suggested that the succulent woman should always freeze a little. That way, she would get thinner without doing a thing! Except, of course, shiver.
Well, I better damn well lose a few pounds, because my apartment is so cold. Sweaters and woolly socks aren’t up to the challenge. In fact, we’re wrapped in blankets most of the time we’re in the living room. And we spend all of our non-sleeping time in that living room. There’s only one working radiator heating up our living room and kitchen (which is basically an elongation of the living room). So I think that’s the culprit right there. There IS a radiator in the kitchen. It’s just that it doesn’t really work. At best, it’s slightly lukewarm. Same goes for our bathroom radiator. But I can sort of live with being cold while taking a pee.
This calls for more coffee.
