When February arrives in Copenhagen I go through the stages of grief. First, Denial: I tell myself that it will be warm soon. That it’s not really so cold. Hell, I LOVE FEBRUARY.
But you know what, it is that cold. Cold and windy and terrible. Then Anger rears its wrathful head and the pupils of my eyes turn to flame as I mutter I HATE FEBRUARY loudly into my scarf, making people around me nervous.
When the internal shouting subsides, I begin to Bargain: if February will just end now, I’ll never watch another Adam Sandler movie (I didn’t say my bargaining made sense).
Finally, Depression. Just, ugh. February. Tears.
And the last stage, Acceptance, never arrives. Because I refuse to accept the wind whipping my face. I will not accept my ears red and ringing. I cannot accept that I need to wear two pairs of gloves to keep my hands from going numb while I ride my bike.
Neither should you. Instead of wallowing in self-pity, though, do yourself a favor and enter our:
