Cranks My Tractor

Before I could shut the window, my nose was dripping icicles.  My face felt like I had been pelted with snowballs.

Looking around I noticed two frozen cups of coffee on my desk.  My computer screens had this haze them on.

I put my hand on my desk and it stuck.

My desk chair has a seat bottom that is kind of like those mattresses that are supposed to conform to your shape or “buttocks” as Forrest Gump might say.  I tried sitting in my chair and it didn’t give a lick.  It felt like sitting on an ice block.  Not that I have ever had the opportunity to try sitting on an ice block.

Trying to figure out the best way to get my office warmed up, I ended up getting a “turbo fan” and trying to suck warm air out of the hall into my office.

It wasn’t working.

It seemed my igloo of an office was now bringing the temperature of my wing of the building down.
