Like a lot of people, the Old Soldier likes chocolate candy. The superintendent of my apartment building has recently been missing in action because of some medical problems. Well, when I was passing through the lobby, I saw he was in his office. I paid him a courtesy call to see how he was doing. There was a basket of Hersey’s chocolate candy kisses on his desk and he repeatedly encouraged me to help myself to the little chocolates. When I left I had a handful of the little chocolate candies in my pocket.
The chocolate helped to cheer me up because the weather is depressing. Over the next several hours the temperature will drop to around zero degrees and the wind chill factor could hit minus 30 degrees.
The Old Soldier plans to stay indoors the next couple of days. I can stay indoors because I’m retired; but what about people who have to work in weather like this? What about the mail carrier? He or she has to walk around in this weather.
Temperatures are supposed to star to rise by Thursday. And by Saturday the high could be around 50 degrees. Thank goodness! Saturday night is karaoke night at Nico’s in Little Italy and I plan to be there.
