A bit chilly?

I take it it's been a bit brisk in NYC of late.

But you want to know what really cold is? Really cold is when, in preparing to brush your teeth, you first soak your toothbrush and toothpaste in a glass of hot water before applying paste to brush and then to teeth. The reason, to prevent your gums from painfully retracting from your teeth and shrivelling into 2 thin blue lines of tissue, quivering with cold.

OK, so I'm exaggerating on the gums actually shrinking, but not on the extreme pain of near frozen toothpaste. And on my current workaround.
I really wish the Japanese believed in central heating.
