A WOMAN has found herself physically incapable of stepping out of her warm shower and into the cold atmosphere of her bathroom.
Mary Fisher has resigned herself to spending the rest of her life in the steamy cubicle due to the fear of the few unpleasant seconds between leaving it and wrapping herself in a towel.
Fisher said: “It’s just not happening. If I ever leave the shower, I know I’ll freeze up like Han Solo at the end of The Empire Strikes Back.
“What’s worse is that I’ve forgotten to turn on the heated rail, so not only will I have to leave this delightful warmth but I’ll have to wrap myself in a chilly, damp towel. Ten SAD lamps couldn’t drag me from the pit of seasonal depression into which that experience would plunge me.
“So I’ve decided just to live in here. Yes, I’ll shrivel up like a prune, and it’s going to be interesting finding out whether Head & Shoulders has any nutritional value, but it’s the only solution to my plight.
“Or maybe I’ll drown. But that would probably be better than setting foot into the freezing misery of the British winter.”
