When Lenin was little

In Latvia we heard a lot about SAD. Authorities warned us of the adverse effects of sun deprivation. Weight gain, depression, lack of energy. The remedy for SAD was a light box. One was to stare at the box for ten minutes and walk away with a brighter (ha) perspective. My comrades and i usually opted for fifteen minutes in a tanning bed (separate beds). I'm not depressed. However, I feel a bit lackluster. Like if Publisher's Clearing House showed up at my front door with an over-sized check, I'd say, "Wow. That's great. But what can you do about this weather?" Also, "I don't remember entering the sweepstakes...".
