The Cold War is over! I couldn’t take it any more. The other day while Big Bear was upstairs I stealthily moved toward the furnace switch and secretly moved the button to H.E.A.T! It was a moment of relief and defeat, but DANG! I was COLD. I was hoping that he wouldn’t notice, but that smell of dust burning gave me away!
A few minutes later I hear BB coming down the stairs. Then I hear: “What is that smell? Would that be the glorious smell of success?” He walks into the kitchen with his hands raised above his head as the “Champion”. He gloated for a moment or two – seemed like 12, but who was counting? Then he said, “It’s about f___king time! It’s d__n cold in this house!”
It was a good thing I did turn on the heat, because that night the temperature fell into the low 20’s. I don’t even want to think about how cold the house would have been the next morning!
