Yesterday, I was wearing a short sleeve shirt at work. One of my coworkers, who was wearing a jacket, wanted to know if I was cold. I told her I wasn't and she seemed surprised and even mentioned that it was cold in the store. Any reason why I wouldn't be cold when the store is?:confused:

Maybe you're just warm-blooded?

I know there are times when I'm freezing, and my husband is sitting there, sweating.

We are always fighting over the thermostat. :p
I turn it up, he turns it back down, then I whine that I'm cold and he tells me to put on a sweater.

Heh - I'm infamous at our place for being warm when everyone else is freezing. It's great fun!

I wear coats to work in the summer. I know I look crazy, but I can't stand when the air conditioning is going wide open. I just like to be nice and cozy.

I'm cold natured myself. Just not as bad as my late grandmother, who would be cold when it would be 75 degrees outside and try to convince me I was cold.

Then she'd have a fit because I'd tell her if she was cold, she needed to wear a sweater instead of trying to get me to wear one.:eek:

Temperature? Huh? I can't tell the difference between sixty and eighty, especially if I've been up and about for a while and my blood's movin'.

At one place I worked, we noticed the tendency for meat-eaters to be warm, but vegetarians were always cold. The one guy that was some kind of macrobiotic vegan was always wearing winter parkas in August...in Texas!

YMMV

Same thing happens when you go on a diet. When your body isn't getting enough energy the heating system is the first to be shut off.
