ICE!

I have a Pilates class in twenty five minutes.

Pilates classes cost money. If you miss one you don't get your money back.

But it is MINUS TWELVE DEGREES OUT THERE!!!

OK, it's zero. But the wind chill makes it feel like minus twelve, according to the US National Weather Service.

I'm sorry, I just think it's crazy to go out in weather like this. I don't care what Jack London says- "Cold begins at minus 20," my a--. Zero is cold. Minus twelve is too freakin' cold.

Pilates, they say, will eventually give me an incredibly strong and perfect body. But what's the good of having a killer bod if you're DEAD? Frozen to a well-toned, core-strengthened, HYPOTHERMIATED BLOCK OF ICE?

I'm not going.

I'm not.

Hilarious! I particularly love the... what's the point if your dead and frozen part. I find these temperatures cause me to ram large amounts of cookies and decaf down my throat.

If Al Gore is to be believed, next year you can SWIM to Pilates.

The thing I love about pilates is that you spend a good amount of the time lying down.
