They say that the most common topic of conversation in the world is the weather. I find myself ceaselessly amazed at mankind’s ability to observe the obvious and make an appropriate statement about it.
It’s so cold today!
It’s so hot today!
It’s time for Lee’s Korea Blog to jump on this merry bandwagon and participate in this quaint aspect of human behaviour. I suspect I’m not alone in the opinion that the highs and lows of Korea’s weather are a topic worthy of complaint. The summers here are as humid as a sauna at a Hades resort, while the winters are as cold as a welldigger’s feet.
I was going to say as hot as a stove and as cold as a fridge, but opted for a fancier simile.
I’d rather be cold than be hot. Uninteresting as it may be, it has (nonetheless), been selected as the opening trivial self-referential fact by which I have chosen to begin this paragraph. Wait, what has? Well, the fact that I’d rather be cold than be hot.
This talking-about-the-weather thing is proving to be more difficult than first imagined.
