Oh gosh. Oh gosh. I think I've already got the late symptoms of hypothermia. Seriously. I am so cold in my office right now I can barely type. My teeth are chattering and my fingers are numb. Surely this can't be good. I wonder if I am allowed to go home? Hmmm....I think I had better ask someone before "Loss of consciousness" sets in. That would not be good. No. Not good at all!
