Cold hineys.

It is thirty degrees outside. My children are in bathing suits. Staring longingly out the window at the pool. I told them under no circumstances are we getting in the pool. They asked me to heat the hot tub. I told them that was still not an option. Jill wanted to know why they couldn't get in the hot tub. I explained that it was too cold outside even with the hot tub heated. I draw the line at sixty degrees.

Jill sighed. She looked at Emmi. "No Emmi, Mommy says we can't swim cause we'll get cold hineys."
