My toes are cold.
Animals grow thicker coats when the weather turns cooler. They migrate to warmer places to keep from freezing to death. Some even curl up in their dens and sleep until it’s a decent temperature again.
Humans put layers of clothing on. Those who can travel to a less snowy area of the country for the winter months. And even though it’s usually pretty hard to drag yourself out of bed in the morning, it’s way easier to make excuses to stay in it when it’s cold out, simply because your bed is so much warmer.
Animals keep themselves warm out of instinct. Humans are animals too, so why don’t we obey our instincts and just snuggle up for the winter? We do ridiculous things like get out of bed in the morning to go to work. We force our cars through the snow to get to our destinations. And we wear sneakers outside, thinking that we’re only going to be out for a little bit as we’re getting into the car and then out of it when we get where we’re going.
I’ll just put my boots on next time.
