hot drinks, cold weather

The perfect pair in the world, undoubtedly.

As your ears turn pink, and your fingers feel the first sign of frostbite, nipping at the tips, coffee (or tea) and a thick blanket can be the cure to any gloomy day.

The temperature is insufferable, intolerable, all the ‘ins’ in this world, and yet, when the first swallow goes down your throat, the warmth hugs your heart, lungs, organs, soul, and whatever else your body may carry.

For a minute, for a moment, the shivers running down your spine are still, frozen.

Ah yes, hot drinks.
