I think I'll just go to sleep in this snow bank. (idea)
|I am getting very sleepy. I’ve been wandering in the woods for what seems like hours now. See, I got separated from the group once this blizzard started and then I got lost. Crap, I think I’ve been here before. These trees seem familiar. If only the snow would stop, so I could see my own tracks. Boy, these snow banks are looking more and more like big, fluffy pillows.|
You’d be surprised how quickly the cold can sap your strength. And it didn’t help any when I fell into that stream. I’m surprised that it isn’t frozen it was so cold. That's how they make clear ice cubes - freeze moving water. Before I got all wet, I could at least feel my toes.
Ha! Toes? Forget about it! Right about now, I can barely feel my heels. Actually, the feeling is kind of pleasant, like I’m walking in space, weightless... My whole body’s numb. I’ll bet if I just lay down in that big snow bank, I would feel like I was floating. Yeah. Just a quick nap – that’s all I need. Give me a chance to save my strength; warm up a little.
