This week's challenge: Using between 33 and 333 words, compose something that includes the third definition of the following word:

BITCH (noun)
1: the female of the dog or some other carnivorous mammals
2 a : a lewd or immoral woman
   b : a malicious, spiteful, or overbearing woman —sometimes used as a generalized term of abuse
3: something that is extremely difficult, objectionable, or unpleasant

I give you exactly 33 words:

The errant mitten left on the bus. A chipped and neglected pedicure. Chapped lips. Dry, itchy skin, especially that spot in the middle of my back I can’t reach. Winter is a bitch.
