To many of us here in the UK, this time of year is the season for arguing with the people you live with about whether or not you should switch the central heating on.
“I’m literally an icicle” claims one person who has a terrible grasp of what the word ‘literally’ actually means. “Put a jumper on” replies the in-house human version of Scrooge McDuck.
