The Post About The Slushdicament of Winter

Snow on Leaves
I love the seasons.

Two of them.

Ahh, there's the sun. And tulips and Reese's Easter Eggs and hair that doesn't have to fight static or humidity.

College football and boots and Halloween and a reprieve from bad summer TV programming.

Summer in Alabama is really not worth discussing. Humidity, bugs, and people wearing less clothing than God intended.

But the real stick in the mud is winter.

Here are the top 5 things I despise about Old Man Stupidhead.

Chapped lips. Lip balm causes heart disease. Because it sure as heck can't seem to moisturize lips.

Gas. You evil, evil utility. My cyber friend, Laurel Mills recently tweeted "...glad to have worked so hard this week just to pay the gas company." Boo to warmth.

Darkness. I still don't fully grasp Daylight Savings. Can we add the sassy extra hour of sleep with no astronomical effect? YES WE CAN.

Sadness. Closely related to #3. I don't speak to my girlfriend Kara because she's all seasonally disordered in winter. Vitamin D, vitamin D, where for art thou Vitamin D?

Global Warming Discussions. Nothing like some sleet to prompt opinions on meteorology. Mine included. For the record, your Facebook News Feed isn't ACTUALLY NEWS. If you don't trust Diane Sawyer, how can you trust your 4th grade lab partner who you don't see in real life to tell you what to think about anything.

What chaps your hide in Winter? Or better yet, what is delightful that I seem to be missing?

  1. I'll give you one ... snuggling up with your favorite blanket by a roaring fire. Nothing like it. And while I agree that fall and spring are by far the best seasons, this is one thing that only works in the context of a chilling winter. In fact, the colder the day ... the better the fire.

    I'm just sayin

  2. I HATE WINTER. I hate the cold. I hate the snow. I hate the cloudiness. I hate the darkness. Can everyday be sunny and 75? Or at least 75. I can go a little warmer on the weekends for pool time. I just hate being cold. Winter sucks.

  3. M: Oh, for a fireplace. Sometimes I consider pulling out a crock pot and throwing in some items from the recycling and cozying up...

    TS: I wish I was taking more pics!

    KE: And Jamie said "Amen."


Don't be afraid if I chase your rabbit comment...
