Teridgr

teridgr - A Finnish condition. Involves incessantly complaining of hot weather from the second the temperature rises to 22 degrees celsius, after having spent the entire year waiting anxiously for the summer and the heat to arrive.

Use: If you are already suffering from an old-lady's case of teridgr don't be having hot coffee all the time. It'll just make you feel worse. Grumble...

We Canadians suffer from the same thing. And I never understood why Mma Ramotswe would have hot tea when she complained about the heat.

The Swedes also have a severe case of teridgr.

My teridgr grows worse every summer. I am looking forward to the days when my aged voice will cackle to request my sweater!
