The single sock dread has to be avoided, so:
The weather here is once again extremely cold. Tomorrow we are supposed to go curling. In my lifetime I have done that twice. Last year and the year before last. Yes, it's an annual event, and it's followed by a "soup-tasting" or potluck dinner at one of the participant's house. With all the cold outside I really don't feel like joining a sport in the cold inside. Especially when I know that I will most probably end up with black and blue knees. Did I mention that I am not really good at curling?
