Hot – Weather You Like It Or Not

Thursday, July 19th, 2012

Twice as hot as it needs to be.

I’ve never slept with a woman who was warmer than me. I mean physically warmer – as in “Can we turn the air conditioner down?,”  “Do you have another blanket?” or “I’m freezing – could you lie closer?”

Now I know there are some scientific theories about this – like body weight, metabolism, and a genetic pregnancy marker – but there’s a fact here they seem to ignore.  You, darling, can always get warmer with more clothing, blankets on your half of the bed, or a small heater.  I – on the other hand – can only get so cool even without clothes or bedding, and with a kickass air-conditioner. My body temperature is not going to drop much past normal – even if I’m too hot.

For both of us to fall asleep comfortably might require separate beds, separate rooms, separate apartments, or even separate cities.
