I'm Cool!

Three degrees cool, that is.

I verified with a second thermometer. My daytime resting temperature is around 95.5. I'm practically another species. Curiosity got the better of me and I've been checking my temp at every remotely related event. I was feeling hot, so I took my temp: 96.1. When I went to bed last night, 95.4. When I woke up in the middle of the night, 96.9, and in the morning 97.2. Those latter readings are fairly normal, except that most people's temp picks up a degree+ when they start moving, whereas as soon as I got up and dressed, my temp dropped back to 95.6. Very strange.

One of the reasons humans and dogs don't share too many diseases is because of the difference in body temperature. I wonder how many human ailments I'm impervious to? Heh heh. (And no, I'm not a dog! Dogs have a higher temperature than humans.)
