How to stay warm in England
This method works really well, especially for expatriate South Africans who just cannot get adequately warmed up in cold and drizzly old England.
You run the dishwasher.
When the drying cycle is completely finished, you quickly open the door and bend down to get the full effect of the hot blast of steam coming off the dishes.
Then you collapse in a fit of giggles.
