52 linked: cold

cold

Cold. I don't mind the cold. We get some nice, cold, sunny weather in the winter. And the twice a decade snow storm. I like my room cold when I sleep. And I love that we have air conditioning now that we've moved to Camas (no one has AC in Seattle. Seattlites just suffer through the twice a decade hot summers they get.) I can handle cold temperatures much better than hot. Perhaps that's because you can layer on the clothes as thick as you want. When it's hot there is only so much you can take off, and then you just have to endure the heat.
But cold is the nemesis of my teeth. And nothing makes me cringe more than seeing people bite into and chew a popsicle. Or chew ice. It sends shivers up my spine. My dental hygienist knows - only use warm water in my mouth unless you want to have to peel me off the ceiling. And I will never, ever forget the time when the dentist used a small stick of ice to find the sensitive spots on my teeth. That may be the easiest way to narrow down those areas, but also the most torturous way. Worst. Pain. Ever. It took everything in my power not to slap his hand away from my face.
So, while this peek into my freezer may look "cool" (pun intended), the ice cream and popsicles give me chills (pun intended, again.) But that bottle of whipped cream vodka...delicious in root beer or orange soda.

Tracey said...

I came "this" close to taking a pic of the inside of my freezer! Ha! Whipped cream vodka? Is that the blue bottle? How do you whip it?!

Heather M. said...

totally love your take on this theme. :) i have sensitive teeth too and the thought of the dentist touching my teeth with ice makes me cringe and sends shivers down my spine. eeks!

Michelle said...

Ha!! I originally took photos of my freezer for this assignment... but mine didn't turn out nearly as good as yours. I adore this. ;)

Jessica said...

OMG, whipped cream vodka?! What is this miracle and how do I get some?

Stacey said...

I'm sorry. I forgot everything after reading "whipped cream vodka".
And your dentist did that??? Shame on him!!

Amanda said...

Number 1. Your freezer is so clean and tidy. I am envious. Number 2. I do not drink vodka or root beer but that actually sounds kind of yummy. We keep a bottle of Grey Goose in the freezer always. ;0 Number 3. I do not like the dentist. I don't like anything about the dentist. Nothing. So that all just sounds awful. Number 4. Ice cream is my favorite food. The End. ;)

Very "cool" idea... I'd love to learn more/participate!

Love your cold idea!

My teeth are the exact same way. And we ran out of Sensodyne last week and I thought it wouldn't be that big a deal to use hubby's toothpaste until I got to Costco. Wrong.

And I had no idea they made whipped cream vodka. Now I know. :)

ZeldaMom said...

Ouch, I don't envy that tooth sensitivity, I kind of envy that whipped cream vodka though!

Just Rhonda said...

Love this shot!!!

Carla said...

Whipped cream vodka?? I had no idea! Sounds delicious. I might have to check it out. Loving the linkedness (it's ok, I'm approved to make up words) on Fridays. Thinking about joining in.

Thanks for posting this photo! I had to make a trip to the freezer to get a sweet treat and this doesn't go hand in hand with new year resolutions!

I like the angle of this shot!
