dolly's diary - 10/7/2010 - the cold

It’s so cold.
I feel it so much.
My skin is so thin, it’s no protection at all, against anything.
My bones are thin too.
All of me is thin and cold and hurting.
The only thing strong about me is my green tiara and it’s made of metal so of course it is cold too.
It’s already broken, so I don’t think it can be hurt anymore.
The cold makes me sad.
I can’t sit on my cardboard box any longer.
I’m going to crawl into a dark place. I hope it will be warmer.
It has holes so the tears can run out.
Maybe if I stay there for long enough the weather will become warm and sunny again.
I long to sit on the warm sand and swim in the sea.

    the warmth dolly desires must come from the inside simply heating the exterior will cause that tiara to glow like a stove element and all will be reversed as desire for that dark place returns….

  • yes so true (stove element????)

    I diagnose Dolly with Seasonal Affective Disorder (yes, I know the acronym is S.A.D., but it’s a real disorder, in the DSM-IV). It can be alleviated by melatonin supplements or “light therapy”; basically, spending 5-10 minutes in a warm room filled with really bright lights.

    Oop! I almost forgot… Vitamin D will help too (and should help Dolly absorb calcium to strengthen her thin bones). You can buy it in vitamin pills if Dolly won’t take Hypol.

  • Nebsy! what would Dolly do without you??

    Brilliant! My sentiments exactly!
    I have not known it to be so bitterly cold in Melbourne, at least not since I was a kid.
    The rain is nice, however a bit of humidity and warmth wouldn’t go astray!

  • and it hasn’t changed since i wrote this a month ago!
    it is sunny as I look out the window, but now we have colds….the cheap airfares north are very tempting!
    thanks for the visit.

    Poor, poor Dolly. Maybe the toaster would’ve heated her up… but that’s broken too, isn’t it?

  • she’s ok now…or she will be now that the weather is warming up!
