lee and i are typically hot-natured people... we prefer the house chilly... the ceiling fans rarely cut off... and heaven knows we LOVE this time of year. well, some of our passion for the chill could be the fact that we both love to bundle up... blankets, coats, layers... you know.
well, i didn't realize it until this year... as in, this winter. but apparently i've diverged from the norm of hot-naturedness. i love to turn the heat on in the car. like all the way. fan on high. all the way in the red. seat heaters on.
over the holidays (i don't remember which one), we were headed to visit nana and papa... and i had the heat rolling... like normal. and i look over and lee had not only taken off his jacket, but had completely unbuttoned his shirt....i only noticed this when he got my attention when he asked me could he crack the window. ummm, no. not permitted.
so after being "called out", i've really been analyzing my quirk... honestly, what is it about being in a car that makes me want it SO. STINKIN'. HOT. i even know that its hot and have realized that if my HOUSE were this hot, we would have to move... there's no way we could get all the heat out in time for summer.
here's what i've come up with so far:
-maybe its the fact that i'm "outside" and i like to be bundled up and warm when i'm outside in the cold...
-its like i'm "building up" or storing my warmth for when i have to get out of the car... if you were standing out in the cold and knew you'd have to strip naked in a few minutes, wouldn't you wanna get as warm as you could while you could? i thought so.
-i've realized that i don't like to "bundle up" when i'm going to be sitting in the car...so, i don't layer up like lee does when he's ready to ride. ahem. and when we're in LEE'S car, he hardly EVER turns the heat on because he doesn't even take off his toboggan.
-maybe its the close quarters and the surrounding cold outside that makes it a teensy bit like a hot tub. just a little.
i've chosen to embrace my quirk. and so has lee... we ran errands sunday afternoon and he got in the car with a short sleeve shirt on... and put his coat in the back seat. attaboy :)
so what's your quirk?
