If I leave the chain on the heating vent in the bathroom while I take a shower, when I go to put it back on ... it is NOT cold. In fact, it is VERY hot.
Same goes for bending over the oven to put meals in/out - the few moments over the stove makes that metal HOT!
I think I MIGHT prefer the cold shock.
In other news, there are too many corners in this house. I am becoming acquainted with them.
