Baby It's Cold Outside

Another winter in LA
Another apartment without heat

I've been here
I know this dance
The snuggie/chenille/gnome quilt combo

Curled up on the couch
Because that's where the tv is
And the music is
And the internet is

In the bedroom
there's the duvet
And the books
But you can't turn pages with gloves on
I've tried

Hard wood floors
Like a slap in the face
For the feet

No longer snoozing for sleep
But to avoid leaving the cocoon.

Footie pajamas seem perfect
Until it's time to pee.

Do they make footies with back flaps anymore? Also - LA isn't cold. It snowed here today! But I guess I have heat so I can't complain.
