Coping Mechanisms

by Bailey

Update: I’m cold.  If you’re British, you probably just got very concerned for my mental state come January.  If you’re from California, you’re probably more sympathetic, sitting there in your t-shirt and flip flops.  Apparently the last several weeks have been abnormally warm for October in Edinburgh, lulling me into a false sense of security.  Let me tell you how I’m coping with this sudden turn of events:  Tea, my ridiculous monkey sock slippers, tea, my second- hand felt blanket, and tea.  I am becoming very attached to the slippers and blanket, and increasingly dependent on the tea.
