Perspective

Overheard as Kelsey and her friends Hugh and Emily try to figure out what and where to play:

"It's five! It's not cold. It's a lot warmer than yesterday."

I am staying next to the fireplace, thank you very much.

(5 degrees Fahrenheit is -15 degrees Celsius.)

All things are relative, aren't they? Especially when you are a kid and you are probably suffering from cabin fever. It doesn't get that cold here anymore since the climate change, thank goodness. Winter here is like one long autumn. You must have to dress in many layers in order to go out.

I'm freezing my ass off, thank you very much. I'm way beyond perspective.

It was 14 today and I thought I was gonna die. I'm such a sissy.

Irene, I'd love one long autumn. My kids would definitely miss the snow.

RC, your perspective is always entertaining.

Sarah, 14 is too cold. I'm a sissy, too. Maybe I'm too butch to be a sissy. I'm a wussy.
