and everyone was so happy and gay
for it was only twenty degrees below zero
and the sun shone."

One morning we ran into a neighbor at the store
and she asked brightly:
"What was it at your house?"
"Fourteen below," we replied.
Her face fell. "We had minus twelve," she said,
and you could see that her day was ruined.
