Cold ... a hard cold.
Bundle up as I have. Wrap yourself in layers of clothing...
I once listened to an East German telephone operator chatting with a fellow telephone operator in another city. It was so cold, she said, that her son had put on 17 sweaters. I listened to the telephone tap tape several times to make sure I had it right ... 17 sweaters.
Swaddle yourself in another and another bit of clothing.
Ordinary clothing, monastic clothing, police officer clothing, businessman clothing, homeless-person clothing, military clothing, au courant clothing, behind the times clothing ... layer after layer ...
The cold doesn't mind, but I do.
