My parents always tell me that I have a weird way of dealing with the weather. According to them, I wear a lot of clothes when the weather is hot and humid. On the other hand, when it’s cold and rainy, I remain pretty much shirtless all the time.
I got around to think for a moment the other day whether they were right. To my amazement, they were! I didn’t know that I was actually doing the opposite of what a sane person would do. So why would I wear a bunch of clothes in the sunny days but remain pretty much shirtless in cold days?
I guess, it has to do with the fact that I hate warm weather. In fact, anytime I see a sunny weather outside, it just turns me off. I make it no secret that I hate warm weather. I sweat unusually in sunny days even during the winter. It makes me feel so uncomfortable that I keep my clothes on pretty much all the time despite that I have to change it every now and then.
On the cooler days, I find that as an opportunity to feel the cold weather and I, albeit absent-mindedly, keep my shirts off. Here in Bangladesh, we don’t get cold weather that often. Even during the winter, the sun is hot enough to make you wonder whether it’s really winter or not.
To believe in Global Warming, you have to be in Bangladesh for a year.
In any case, as I’ve written in the previous post, it’s been raining non-stop in Dhaka for the past few days. The weather is cold. And I, without actually knowing, have been playing on the PlayStation 4 all-day without any shirts on.
As inevitable as it was, I’ve caught a cold. I felt the hammering on my head indicating the arrival of the sickness. Shortly thereafter, I was coughing up a lot and then I realized, the inevitable had happened.
It’s 3.23 am in the morning and I haven’t been able to sleep. It’s been raining like crazy over the entire night and I’m listening to the sweet sound of raindrops on our tin-made roof. I have been listening to this for the past few days continuously. But this time, I wasn’t comfortable. I had a cold. And a headache.
It’s those little moments when I realize that not being sick is one of the greatest moments of your life. 😦
