I’m a little sick, and yesterday on the walk from the office to the Metro I was almost shivering — despite a jacket, overcoat, scarf and hat. I rarely get cold like that. My ears and toes get cold, but it has to be pretty cold before my body gets cold.
I can understand why people think of cold as a thing that you can catch. It certainly feels that way. It’s as if “cold” is this entity out there in the world that sneaks its way into your body.
