A local husband is confused as to why his wife, who complained about the air conditioning all summer, now loves nothing more than being piled with blankets.

“I don’t get it,” said the man who wished to remain anonymous. “When the thermostat went below 60 this summer, she said that air conditioning was a tool of the patriarchy and she couldn’t submit to its icy subjugation.”

The entire time, she never bothered to mask those compliments with a blanket. In October, though, she changed her tune.

“Suddenly, she couldn’t wait to wear big sweaters and heavy boots and she put 15 blankets on the couch. I haven’t seen her below the neck since Halloween.”

While Velvet Hamster would like to know why this seeming contradiction seems to be so popular, we’re afraid to ask.
