Am I a Wimp

I got a pretty nasty cold from being outside too long in a temperature that wasn't cold enough to even be able to snow in, last week. It kinda sucks, but these sicknesses help with the immune system don't they? And maybe I'll avoid situations where I have to stand outside for a long time. 
 
I should point out that this is, of course, a south Texas winter; it couldn't have been colder than ~40 degrees. My body's just not used to prolonged periods of that temperature though. 
 
It's gonna suck when I (hopefully) move up north one of these days.

Nah, I tried jogging two blocks in the cold and got a sore throat and a limp for the next week. If that's not wimpy I don;t know what.

Y'see, that's why I could never live in Texas - I like that kind of weather.

 

Now if North Carolina would just get some snow one of these days, I'd be happy.

You can't catch a cold from temperature. Scientifically false!

Does cold temperature not weaken the immune system or something? I thought that was how it worked.

Yeah, I read that yesterday, change in humidity, and bunch of things can affect how well the body holds back diseases. 

 

So yeah, Google confirmed that my entry is actually scientifically inaccurate. Whoops. :P

Oh I will. You guys are prolly gonna laugh at me too. :P
