Chillyitus

I have just watched Stav Danaos in action on the weather forecast in the 12.57 PM BBC weather. And it’s quite plain to see even to a layman that he’s suffering from a bad case of chillyitus. The definition of Chillitus for those who don’t know it is the overuse of the word chilly, when phrases such as rather cold, cold and very cold would be far more appropriate and descriptive. In less than three minutes he managed to insert the ‘C‘ word a total of five times. I’m not just picking on Stav here, many weather presenters seem to suffer quite severely from this affliction. Research suggests that their limited vocabulary is possibly due to being bullied at school and manifests itself in them having a complete aversion to using the word cold.
