Fear... the great motivator

Getting off the bus one noticed a chill in the air that hadn't been present a couple of hours before. We have had a couple of days relief due to cloud cover, but the last two have been a clear blue as far as the eye could see. Now the temperature was starting to drop again. By the time one got home, showered, snacked on some peanut M&Ms in lieu of dinner (really need to go back to the gym ASAP) and made a cup of tea the temperature had plummeted a couple of degrees... we were in for another cold snap. Stop snickering... glares at a friend from Sweden who giggled all over Fet's message wall... you would die in our summers and after one of those this is freezing.

Wandering over to the couch to huddle under the covers one thought, not looking forward to meeting Him naked at the door tomorrow. The internal dialogue carried on...
Well why the hell are you going to?
Well He would be disappointed if one didn't
Small scoffing sounds emitted followed by that's all you've got?
Well there would be reprisals
Oh please it's not like He would kill you.
No, but it would be something fitting and horrid
You know you're like a child... anything He could do isn't as bad as you can imagine
Oh not sure about that... some of His stuff is nasty
So you're frightened of Him?
No, not of Him
So you're frightened of what He might do?
It's more that one has a healthy respect for Him and what he might do
Oh what crap, you are frightened of what He might do. Child!

That may be the case, but one is going to be the naked child waiting at the door for Him tomorrow morning J

9-15C is spring/autumn or heck, early/late summer. It is NOT freezing. Actually, freezing is after -10C. At -9C, people where I'm from will unbutton their jackets and sit outside during lunch break tanning and having coffee in the snow.

LOL Growing up that temp. would have been a summers day. Of course some of us migrated to the warmer climates for that reason :D

My suggestion- do some exercises to warm up, then strip off right before he walks in. Or if you're not sure of the exact time, wrap up in a blanket that you can throw off quickly. I have experience waiting naked in a cold bedroom.
