What is the colloquial word for a person who begins to feel cold much more readily than other people? The kind of person who is always careful to have enough clothes on and who complains about open windows, drafts of cold air, etc.
I would call someone like this a right royal pain in the arse.
It's kind of slang here, but we call people like that "cold-blooded."
Yeah, "cold-blooded" would be what I would say.
Ditto "cold-blooded" but watch out; that can also describe someone who's harsh and ruthless. Just make sure the context is clear.
Has anybody heard the phrase chilly morsel?
I have never heard his phrase before. Where did you hear it?
I have no idea what such a person is called but I am such a person for sure. Only now I have really cold hands and I am shivering with cold although it's still summer. Despite the fact that the temperature outside is rather low for the time of the year (it's only 10 degrees Celsius in Poland) I am always cold, and the opened windows and draughts are my enemies. So what is the name for such a person? In Polish it is "zmarzluch" and in English?
Never heard that. It sounds extremely comical.
