Does Spring Read my Blog?

Don't get me wrong, it was still fairly cold today. And I hear the hoggie saw his stupid shadow. But it was actually, sort of, warmish today. A bold 42. I didn't even wear my coat once I got to campus. I could imagine what it will be like when my long sleeve shirt is unbearable.

And yet, I fell on my tush. I've been stepping lightly for weeks now, mincing my way like a grandma down our sidewalk so as not to slip. Of course this evening, when the warming weather brought down my gaurd just a touch, I ate it. Good thing I have such a cushy rear, and good thing I landed on it and not my bones.

I heard another big storm is coming your way, so I hope you enjoyed the warm. Be careful on the ice. Falls can be nasty.

that's what tushes are for--to thwart winter.

Sorry you fell down, though.

I took one of those a few weeks ago. It shocked me so badly that I had to stand there and whimper for a few minutes while the entire side of my body and face were covered in powder. I hate ice. Ice. baby.
