That discussion has been going on as long as there have been kids to annoy the older generation with their rock music or that newfangled fire.

The forecast was too disturbing. Visions of grey toes and tingling fingers scared me. I decided the local movie theater might provide a Saturday outing with a lower risk of frostbite.
