Come over to my house tonight?
No Violet, you come to me.
Oh come on, come here, I have a fantastic fire. And soup…
I have central heating and French champagne sweetheart. Also, my car’s in for a service.
Yeah, but – French Champagne? Ugh still. Then I have to get up, get in my car, it’s freezing outside, I’m lazy, I don’t feel like putting on clothes and…
I also have chocolate.
I don’t care about chocolate.
Goddammit stop being difficult, I’ve been looking forward to this all day.
You know it’s like zero degrees out there, and did I mention I’m lazy, also it’s so cosy here, my dog’s on my lap, I’m reading a great book, a fantastic book in fact…
Oh come on, you’re choosing your book over me?
I put the phone down on him.
And that’s the thing about winter. It’s just too hard to have a lover.
We’ll try again in Spring.
