I Can't Feel My FACE!

A work week always feels longer than the 120 hours it's defined to contain. Especially when it's cold. Not JUST cold. More like, never leave the house cold. More like, I can see my breath and my nose hairs are frozen cold. More like, we need to wear multiple layers no matter how fat it makes us look cold. More like, I can't feel my face cold. Really. I couldn't feel my face.

Commuting never makes your day any better. Especially on a Friday. Especially when it's cold. If you're heading to an outer borough, you better pick just the right seat. When you get above ground and those doors open, that gust of COLD will slap that taste out of your mouth. Be warned.

Of course, the train is crowded. The volume of jackets, scarves, and hats accentuates the crowd, adding to their mass AND girth. One brave soul grabs the pole. With all that sniffling, who KNOWS what's growing on it?

Don't fret, peoples. It may be bricker than brick, but you KNOW the sun will come out tomorrow. You KNOW you can sleep in tomorrow. You KNOW your covers will put in extra work tomorrow. You KNOW you can play your records extra loud tonite. Life is good.

Here's some suggestions for the stereo. Close your eyes. Imagine. This is keep your brain warm type ish:
WELDON IRVINE - Morning Sunrise
ROY AYERS - Everybody Loves the Sunshine
THE TEMPREES - You Make the Sun Shine

Damn... if you're talking about cold, I live in Ottawa now. All last week with the wind-chill it was around like -30 - -40ish (°F). Luckily, like you said, the sun still manages to come out.. even if you can't feel it.
