7 days ago… (7天前…)

I woke up this morning, like every morning, at 8am.

I’ve been waking up at 8am every day for the last few months, out of habit.

Every day I realise I have nothing to do at 8am, so I go back to sleep, and have quite vivid dreams. Before I go to sleep, however, I like to turn on the air conditioning (heating) in my room, to try to defrost it for when I wake up again (at 9am).

So I go back to sleep, but when I wake up I realise that something doesn’t feel right. I’m shivering like an epileptic in an igloo. But why?! I tried to retrace my steps…what had I done differently this morning? I woke up. I reached for the air conditioning remote control. I pressed the ‘ON’ button. It turned on…
所以我继续睡觉,但是当我醒过来,我意识到有些不对劲.我浑身抖得像一个在小房间的癫痫患者.怎么回事?我尝试一步一步回忆…今天早上我做了什么不一样的? 我醒来.然后拿空调遥控器.我按了’开’.然后开了…

Then it hit me. Literally. Cold air in my face. The air conditionig was conditioning my air to an even 18 degrees celsius. Cold air. For an hour. I was Shanghai’s biggest ice-cube.

Now all I need to do is find a huge cocktail to dive into.


  1. oh i thought it hit you that you’re not wrapped within the warmth heat of the female species :P

  2. I’ll be glad to volunteer my services if you need a human hot water bag……
