Yes, Mark, it really is that cold

Mark has been here 10 days. In those 10 days I have heard the same thing everyday. At least once. Many times, more then that. "It is so cold here!", he'll sniff.

He tells me, he tells friends, he tells people in the street, and store attendants, and his rubber duckie in the bathtub. We all know he thinks it is cold. But still he keeps mentioning it. Like if he brings it up enough times God will notice and put it on the agenda for his next meeting.

I want to tell him that we all find it cold, it isn't just a personal imposition he is suffering through in non-silence by himself. Its the mountains, and mountains have snow, which is why we see all the people on the street wearing ski gear. They most likely think it is cold too.

I have heard it so many times, I am now thinking of turning into a drinking game.
