The bite of cold iron

It's cold out today. I grabbed my car key in my bare hand after driving a brief way in the cold car, and it *stung* my hand. I felt like I'd been bitten or burned--I guess because the key was so cold? But I've never felt cold metal like that before. Maybe I always have gloves or mittens on? But suddenly I understood exactly what it must be like to be one of the fairy folk and touch cold iron.

It's brutal out there. I was planning to load the van for AnimeZAP today, but I decided to delay until tomorrow for safety. And my brother texted me to let me know the new computer had arrived-- and the aluminum case was so cold it hurt to touch. He's going to wait until tomorrow before he plugs it in and tries to start it up.

Wise decision! And I know just how your brother must have felt!

Everything was just being its natural self--but a cold hurty bitey sort of natural self.

A brush with the fairy world. Hope your next one doesn't bite.

It's worth it even if it does!
