Lamentably so, human beings are not impervious to the cold, but it does affect some more than others.
If you are one of the unlucky people to be chronically cold, you will even be reaching for that sweater and hot coffee in the summertime. You have moments in which you swear you are a human iceberg and wish you took more after Elsa and not her lovely, but less cold-resistant sister. The cold does bother you, anyway, it always has, and here are 15 things you do when the cold comes a creepin':
1. Complain about being cold

Of course the first thing you do is complain because everyone needs to be sympathetic to your plight. Don't all good friends wish to hear you say, "I'm freezing" or "it's so cold!" twenty times a minute?
2. Spend an extra couple of minutes washing your hands with hot water
You're sorry to waste the water, but darn, it is worth it.
3. Show people your impressively prominent goosebumps
It's not like they've seen goosebumps before, right?
4. Touch people to prove how cold you are
Because who doesn't love being prodded with icicle-fingers?
5. Wear socks, slippers, and a robe inside
The more layers, the better.
6. Cling to warm people
Channel your inner koala and latch onto the closest human. Someone you know of course.
7. Sit on your hands or rub them together, though you know you're fighting a losing battle
Will you ever be relieved of the ice in your blood? Will the sun ever truly rise for you again?
8. Try to get warmth from your phone
Though it be but little, its warmth is fierce. Your cellphone may not hold a candle to a toasty fire, but it can still provide you with some heat.
9. Do jumping jacks or any random jig that makes it look like you really need to go to the bathroom
Your feet are exceptionally happy when you're cold, dancing all over the place.
10. Decide any time is a good time to get bundled up in bed

...even if it's the middle of the day.
11. Worry that your hands and feet will forever be blocks of ice

It's like getting zapped with an freeze-ray every time you accidentally touch your leg with your own foot in bed at night. And for the ladies, putting on a bra with cold hands is not fun.
12. Take a steaming hot shower or bath
The relief is unparalleled.
13. Use a blanket as a shawl
If you can make it look as elegant and chic as Audrey, you're golden.
14. Hug a mug of hot tea or coffee as if it is your life source
Lorelai has the right idea.
15. And of course, when you finish one mug, violently throw it on the ground and insist upon being brought another ;)
Power on, my fellow cold people!
