It’s never too cold for puns

Every weekday morning, after dropping James off at school, I pop in my earbuds and call my parents in Connecticut for a quick chat. This morning, it was my dad who answered. He didn’t even say hello. Dad: Zero! Me: Two! Weather you like it or not, it’s here. Winter. Trying to stay positive #NeverTooColdForPuns…
