Twilight Zone

The crack of dawn had barely passed when I had the most glorious ride into town. The glistening roads, snowcapped mountains and beaming lights coming off The Cut was a vision of winter wonderland. My digits were barely intact as the piercing temperatures hovered at zero; nonetheless it brought a smile to my face.

Over the summer I ran into an old friend from Toronto who reminded me of the time that my ears got frostbitten. It was minus twenty-two with the windchill factor and I refused to remove the metal, clip-on earrings my mother bought me. They transmitted the biting cold ten-fold; the foolish things we do for fashion.
