I'm healthy enough to happily and easily give blood. (Giving blood is also an exact science; I don't know how long it's been that, but I'm so, so glad we know exactly how to do it.)

I've got boots for walking, and for keeping my feet warm.

I can be warm, just in general. (One reason I didn't go out last night? I wasn't in the mood to be cold. I was a wuss. But a warm wuss.)
