Winter Warps My Brain
Part of me is delighted that December is here. Just 3 weeks until the solstice, until the days start getting longer.
Then I think “In 6 weeks, the days will only be as long as today? Oh my god, help me.”
I read recently that Norwegians look forward to winter. Maybe if I had the northern lights and liked skiing?
Nah, it would still be horrible.
And I’m still having hot flashes. I get a tantalizing month off, then they return with a vengeance.
I’m about ready to carve a thermometer shape into my forehead and take on a permanent blank gaze, a la Charlie Manson.
Is it 8 pm yet? Good! Time for bed!
