A Tale of Two Temperatures
Me: It’s not cold enough to have all these blankets on the bed.
Cole: Yes it is.
Me: No, it’s not. You have 10,000 blankets on the bed.
Cole: It’s freezing in here.
Me: You’re overreacting. We are in Pasadena. It is not that cold.
Cole: I can’t feel my toes.
Me: I’m being crushed by the weight of these blankets.
Cole: You’re being dramatic.
Me: Just watch. You’re going to wake up to discover I’ve been turned into a diamond.
Cole: <gives me a look>
Me: These blankets are too heavy. I think they’re collapsing my lungs.
Cole: Go to sleep.
