I never knew the name for the game we play every year about this time, when it starts getting cool and we see who breaks down first to turn up the thermostat. Will it be me because I can't type? Or my wife because she can't play the piano? Sami introduces us to Thermostat Chicken- "a term used for the practice of avoiding heating in winter, or cooling in summer, and competing - implicitly or explicitly - with other household members to see who can hold out the longest."
