Bear or Hare?

A friend and I were discussing how warm and cozy a mutual friends house was due to the heated floors in the house. Expensive to put in, expensive to run, but oh what a difference! So, where would we put warm floors? All over the house? Downstairs? Just the bedroom?

My friend thought the bedrooms would be a waste. You get up, get dressed and you are out of there. I guess she is a hare. She dons a white coat and hops about in search of food. The cold makes her move and she gets warm.

Me, I'm more of a bear. I don't becomet energized by the cold; I get sleepy. Moving about is an effort of body and mind. I become dispirited. Cold outside? Where's my bed and hand me more covers. Another please. Nope, not warm enough yet. Ah, that's better. Now I'll just stay here till "spring peaks over the window pane!"

I don't know if hares can ever understand us bears; just move seems to be their credo. Every time I mentioned a room that I would need heated she said "but that isn't a problem. You are moving." Simple to her; but if you are a bear you know what I mean. Moving? Is that really possible?

Winter is here, and so are the hares and bears.
So what are you?

Bear. I hate the cold.

On another note. I was wondering if you might give me your thoughts on this matter. And anyone else who wants to as well.

Definately a bear here. This morning I awoke and scrambled into the hot shower. Got the bathroom nice and steamy warm!

Then I stepped out of the shower abnd realized that there were no bath towels. D'oh!

I walked, nekkid and dripping wet, from the bathroom down the cold hall to the closet to get a towel.
Gotta hand it to the hares. That walk sure invigorated me!

But I was sooooooo happy to re-enter that warm steamy bathroom.

I think you ought to put the heated floors in the bathroom. That's how they do it in Norway and you have to concede that they know a lot about cold there.
