The song "Baby Its Cold Outside" has pretty much been the soundtrack of my life for the past little while. I remembered that it gets cold, but I guess I just forgot how cold and how miserable it is. The sad part is that no one can really afford to have the heat on as high as we would like. I'm not freezing, its much warmer in the apartment then it is outside, but I like it toasty :) Anyway, it is just so ridiculous how cold it is. In fact I have been doing some pretty weird things lately to get some extra warmth. I sit on my hands a lot, when my roomie has her laptop on the table I'll put my hands up to the fan, I actually take the bus now (I guess that's not really a weird thing), and I even consider not going to SI sessions which help a ton with school just because its so cold!
So! If I had a special someone to share these bitter winter days with, our conversation might just go like this:
"I really can't stay - Baby it's cold outside
I've got to go away - Baby it's cold outside
This evening has been - Been hoping that you'd drop in
So very nice - I'll hold your hands, they're just like ice
My mother will start to worry - Beautiful, what's your hurry
My father will be pacing the floor - Listen to the fireplace roar
So really I'd better scurry - Beautiful, please don't hurry
Well maybe just a half a drink more - Put some music on while I pour
The neighbors might think - Baby, it's bad out there
Say, what's in this drink - No cabs to be had out there
I wish I knew how - Your eyes are like starlight
To break the spell - I'll take your hat, your hair looks swell
I ought to say no, no, no, sir - Mind if I move closer
At least I'm gonna say that I tried - What's the sense in hurting my pride?
I really can't stay - Baby don't hold out
Ahh, but it's cold outside
I simply must go - Baby, it's cold outside
The answer is no - Ooh darling, it's cold outside
This welcome has been - I'm lucky that you dropped in
So nice and warm - Look out the window at that storm
My sister will be suspicious - Man, your lips look delicious
My brother will be there at the door - Waves upon a tropical shore
My maiden aunt's mind is vicious - Gosh your lips are delicious
Well maybe just a half a drink more - Never such a blizzard before
I've got to go home - Oh, baby, you'll freeze out there
Say, lend me your coat - It's up to your knees out there
You've really been grand - I thrill when you touch my hand
But don't you see - How can you do this thing to me?
There's bound to be talk tomorrow - Think of my life long sorrow
At least there will be plenty implied - If you caught pneumonia and died
I really can't stay - Get over that hold out
Ahh, but it's cold outside
Baby it's cold outside"
Don't freeze out there!
