冬が始まるよ

立冬を過ぎると、朝夕に寒さを感じ始め、「また冬がやってくるなあ」と思わせる。

私は冬が苦手だ。
そして夏も苦手だ。

誰しも一度は、「夏と冬、どっちが好きか?」と聞かれたり、自問自答したことがあるだろう。
私も何度か、その手の質問を受けたことがあるが、大抵、
「え~、春と秋が好き。」
と、質問の答えになっていない答えを言ったりする。

だって、暑いのも寒いのも嫌いなんだもの。

人間は当然ながら体温が周囲の気温に変化を受けない恒温動物の類に分類される。だが、私は自分が「変温動物か?」と思うくらい体温が変化する。気温が低ければ36℃を下回り、暑くなれば上昇する。
献血を趣味とする私は、献血前の体温測定で(今はしないようだが)体温が37℃を超えることがしょっちゅうで、再測定を余儀なくされることが多々ある。
だから、夏は活発になるが暑さにだれまくり、冬は冬眠に入るカエルのように動きが悪くなる。

でも、言えることは夏・冬が好きという質問と、暑さ・寒さが好き、というのは違うようだ。
暑い方がマシと思っても、夏は日焼けや、睡眠中の蚊に悩まされたり、食べ物がすぐ腐ったり、ゴキブリが発生したりするという問題がある。
寒い方がマシと思っても、肌の乾燥や、野菜が高騰したり、野球がシーズンオフだったり(どうでもいい人もいる)、電気やガス代がかさんだり、年末年始が孤独である、という問題がある。

やっぱり、春と秋がいいなあ~、私は。
昔から思っていたのは、
春は小麦が実る頃。秋はキンモクセイの咲く頃。」が私にとってベストな季節だと思う。
あ~、なんて美しい表現。

うちのアパートの駐車場にキンモクセイが数本あり、花の咲くのを楽しみにしていたのだが、今年は開花前にバッサリと剪定されて、花を楽しむことができなかったので、トイレの芳香剤はキンモクセイにしようかなと思っている会長でした。

ちなみに夏と冬、究極的に選ぶとしたら、やっぱり「夏」でしょうか。
・服装が簡単(Tシャツ大好き)
・風呂がシャワーで済む
・ビールがうまい(夏に限らず飲んでるが)
という、しょうもない理由で。

「冬は寒いけど、飲みに行って1次会の後、移動するときって寒くないんだよね~。何でかな?酒で身体が暖まるんだね」
と話していたら、それを聞いていたある人が、
「だからみんなそのまま道に寝ころんで、凍死したりするんだよね。」
と言っていたなあ。
気をつけよう。

After looking over a number of the blog articles on your web page, I seriously appreciate your technique of writing a blog. I added it to my bookmark webpage list and will be checking back soon. Please check out my web site as well and let me know how you feel.

I believe what you posted was very reasonable. But, what about this? suppose you wrote a catchier post title? I mean, I don't want to tell you how to run your blog, however suppose you added something that makes people want more? I mean 冬が始まるよ: OGK会長のつぶやき is kinda vanilla. You could peek at Yahoo's home page and see how they create post titles to grab people interested. You might add a video or a related picture or two to grab readers excited about everything've written. In my opinion, it could make your posts a little bit more interesting.

Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!
