I have NEVER had cold feet.
It is standard (known among those that know me) that every chance I get shoes and socks come off and my feet lead the way all the way to my brain as my soul goes, "AAAaaahhhhhhwwww!!
At night I am in prison if my feet are covered. One of the first things I do in most hotels is un-tuck the foot of the bed. Stockings are useful in cold weather, in boots, and in athletic shoes - otherwise fagitaboutem!
So why are my feet suddenly feeling cold enough for me to put them on?

Phhoohey - he is on the same skid row I am.
COLD FEET - bah! humbug!
