Christmas in July?

ist2_4247144-cold-thermometerIt is the bane of most of the tiny girls I know, and an inescapable fact for those not so thermally inclined… Even in the summer, it can be pretty freaking cold. Or rather, WE can be pretty freaking cold. When your internal thermometer is kinda wonky, you can freeze just sitting in the shade on a hot summer’s day.

I know. I’ve done it.

And don’t get me started on getting out of the pool during the summertime. It’s shiver city!

…. Ok… I’m a freak. I know. 😛

    I KNOW! I’m sitting here in my office wearing a tank, a hockey jersey AND a jacket … with a blanket across my lap and a space heater cranked. lol

    While I on th other hand just give off body heat. But I have friends who like you are cold all the time, I been attacked once by a pair of them who need to warm up. Nothing is funny on the outside I guess then two small women chasing a larger guy.

    I am the same way. Anytime I am at home I am wrapped in a blanket; preferably with a cup of tea.

Calvin says i’m crazy cause i freeze all day then at night i sleep with a sheet and the air conditioner turned up high. mean while he is covered up with a thick duvet and tells me i’m trying to freeze him to death in his sleep. ha ha.

    It’s not just the tiny girls either! I’m six feet tall, and I’ve been known to read outdoors in a sweater when it’s 90 degrees in the shade. (Sitting still for a long time makes anyone’s body temperature drop a bit…) I think I’m just geared for warmer weather.

    You know what’s also fun? Having a plasma TV, room really warms up then… and during the summer, that’s extra fun.

    My friends are all like that, but I’m backwards! I’d go snowboarding in Jeans and a T-shirt if they where water proof and still be perfectly warm. XD

    My wife is the same dang way. I’ve got the a/c pumped up, am walking around in shorts, melting into a puddle, and she’s in her chair, wearing long pants, a hoodie, and wrapped in a blanket or three. Blows my mind.

    I’d like to go on record as saying that this also happens to huge men. Slow metabolism or something I guess.

    I have a built in furnace. Wife keeps telling me to turn it on, even in summer ’cause she’s cold.

    Hey, I’m not tiny, and I still have the cold curse.

    Maybe it’s because we are experiencing a summer that is about 6-10 degrees below the average? Well at least in Montreal we are…

    Oh, my girlfriend is also very freezy.. but she is neither tiny nor lean. in fact, she has much more “insulation” than me… i guess it is also a cardiovascular matter.
    perhaps your pet scientist should race you around the the house a few times 🙂

    It could be that you’re missing brown fat: it’s the body’s heater.
