The thing that I remember MOST about unSCruz last year (besides some stellar “naps” with The Swede) was how FRIGGING COLD it was in the evenings.
I brought this to wear at night:
Now, there are two things wrong with this.
- It is obviously not a cold weather romper. In fact, I doubt any romper is appropriate for cold weather.
- I can’t figure out how to get into it sober, let alone figure out how to get into it when I’m drunk, in the dark, in a tent, with The Swede watching. There’s just too many straps and moving parts.
Because of this, I did something I almost never do.
I slept in the nude.
And let me tell you, I was SNUGGLED UP AGAINST THE SWEDE THE WHOLE TIME.
Why it is that men are like furnaces when it’s cold but my ass is like an ice cube?
Apparently during the night, I STOLE all the covers and The Swede had to wake me up and ask for the covers back.
Of course, I obliged.
Then I snuggled with him to warm HIM up.
Because I’m sweet like that.
This time around there will be no Swede, warm or cold, to keep me company.
I am sleeping in a small 7 foot by 8 foot tent.
I’m less than enthusiastic about my prospects for keeping warm at night.
You see, I much prefer a human body next to me instead of a pillow.
But somehow I’m sure I’ll survive.
And who needs sleep anyways?
