As the unbearable Michigan heat quickly turns into unbearable Michigan cold we, here at the 2nd Ave. house, have begun to prepare for Winter.
Our first step was learning to master the death trap in our living room.
That's right. While you in the suburbs have your fireplaces and central heating we, in the city, have a steady flow of Carbon Monoxide set aflame.** We do have radiators in most rooms but they haven't really been working.***
Other Winter Preparations: Saving for a Parka.
Public transportation + Winter + Me = I hate my life.
Public transportation + Winter + Me + $300 Parka = I hate my life, but at least I'll be able to feel my limbs.
Oh well, at least I'll be able to curl up with a book and my fiery Carbon Monoxide after I trudge home from the bus stop.
*The obvious solution is to go sit somewhere else, but I don't feel like it.
** Should probably add Carbon Monoxide Detector to shopping list.
***Which is fine, because when they are working they sound like men breathing heavily by our bed sides. An unsettling sound no matter where you live.
