Involuntary Shiver

Today we drove a different way to church because we were picking up someone. We passed a shopping center that has the temperature on the sign. Below is the conversation that followed:

Sam: Negative six degrees.
Emily: Wow. (Looks up and sees the sign.) Wait, why do you always say Celsius? It confuses me.
Sam: It's more impressive. 22 degrees is meh, but -6 degrees is freakin' cold.

That is the difference between Sam and me. Twenty-two degrees is cold enough to elicit a reaction of horror from me, but Sam reserves those statements for "more impressive" numbers like -6. Brrr...
