Unique 3rd Brake Light Failure Symptom

I've read through a bunch of the 3rd brake light threads and have not seen my symptoms described:

The light has been out for a little while; was working when I bought the car in March 2017, but hasn't been for the last couple months. At least until the autumn weather moved in....

It works in the morning when it is cold, but after the car gets warmed up a little, it stops working.

Any thoughts as to whether this might be a connection-type failure (connects when cold and shrunken up, but when warm and expanded fails)? Or should I just go ahead and work on one of the several suggested fixes (well, except the OEM replacement part fix). Opinions welcome.

Yep, sounds exactly like an expansion/contraction issue from temperature. If it's never been taken apart and inspected I would start there, it's probably something just barely out of contact and the act of disassembly/reassembly will "fix" the problem.

If it's the one in the wing, it's the trunk to body connector.

No wing; on the shelf in the cabin.
