Cold weather has a great effect on how our minds and our bodies work. Maybe that’s why there are so many expressions that use the word ‘cold’. For centuries, the body’s blood has been linked closely with the emotions. People who show no emotions or feels, for example, are said to be cold-blooded. Cold-blooded people act in cool ways. They may do brutal things to others and not by accident. For example, a newspaper says the police are searching for a cold-blooded killer. The killer murders someone not in self-defense or because he was reacting to anger or fear. He seems to kill for no reason, and with no emotion. As if taking someone’s life meant nothing. Cold can affect other parts of body, the feet, for example. Heavy socks can warm your feet, if your feet are really cold. What there isn’t an expression to get cold feet that has nothing to do with cold or your feet? The expression means being afraid to do something that you decided to do. For example, you agree to be the president of an organization. But then you learn that all the other officers have resigned. All the work of the organization will be your responsibility. You are likely to get cold feet about being the president when you understand the situation. Cold can also affect your shoulder. You give someone the cold shoulder when you refuse to speak to them. You treat them in a distant cold way. The expression probably comes from the physical act of turning your back to someone in stead of speaking to him face to face. You may give a cold shoulder to a friend who has not kept the promise he made to you, or to someone who has lied about you to others. A cold fish is not a fish. It is a person, but it is a person who is unfriendly, unemotional and shows no love or warms. A cold fish does not offer much of himself to anyone. Someone who is a cold fish could be cold-hearted. Cold-hearted person is someone who has no sympathy. Several popular songs, in recent years, were about cold hearted men or cold hearted weman who without feelings broke the hearts of their lovers. ‘Out in the cold’ is an expression often heard. It means not getting in something that everybody else get. The person might said that everyone but him got a pay raise. That he was left out of cold. And that is not a pleasant place to be.
