blankets warm the outside layer of our bodies, and showers from inside out.
so i decided to take one this afternoon because i was wearing a big blue sweatshirt and still couldnt feel my insides heating up.
so i turn on the shower and get in after a few minutes expecting steam and thicker air.
but what i got was luke warm/cool water and hardly any water pressure.

so after a few minutes thinking it just hadnt had enough time to really heat up (after years of having cars that are warm enough only right when you get to the destination), i shut it off really quickly thinking that if i turn it on really fast, maybe a burst of hot will shoot out and make these last few minuntes of icecubebody be worth it (kind of like the hiccup theory, right? SCARE. oh they are gone....never works.)

didnt work.
so i shut it off and got my towel and wrapped it around my body, bending down touching my chest to my legs, with the towel drapped over me.
and i thought about how, when getting out of a pool, we would count down 10-0 and dash to grab the largest towels and get into that same exact position and chatter our little teeth, and our mothers would hug us and then, even when we got warm, our bodies would still be shaking from the remebrance of the change.
