The meaning of cold

Thursday, February 18, 2010 at 7:13 am

Having little or no warmth. Not affectionate, cordial or friendly. Lacking in passion, emotion, enthusiasm. Chilled. With complete competence, thoroughness, or certainty, as in he learned his speech cold. It’s a complicated word. Four little letters with a multitude of meanings.

In my book, Cold Case in Ellyson, the word “cold” has a double meaning…cold case, as in an unsolved mystery and cold case, as in a person without warmth or compassion. Florida in February, and it’s been quite cold.
