Kids must be hard-up for sledding

It started snowing in town about 4pm yesterday. Combined with the bitter cold we’ve been having (at least, bitter cold for these parts), and the fact that my house is on a hill that doubles as a wind tunnel, and that snow was quickly compacted into a nice layer of ice outside my house. The spot in front of my driveway. in particular (why me?), resembled the surface of an ice rink.

My sister wound up parking for the night at the top of the hill. As we were gingerly stepping back down to the house, we passed a guy walking up—foot traffic was huge last night, and I imagine the number of cars parked in unusual spots was similarly huge—who sarcastically commented how much fun this whole snow thing was.

This morning, there are kids screaming past my house. On sleds. In the street.


Edit: Those ain’t no kids; them’s college students! They’re a bit bigger than kids, but apparently not much brighter. =D

    By the power vested in me by myself, I have modified “Level 89 Seducing Man”‘s link to point to the only page strong enough to mention venereal disease and a periodic inability to type “unicorn” on the same page. Hope your VD and typo was enjoyable!

    Also: yes, that is what passes for “tradition” these days.
    Also also: spammers must be hard-up for spamming [this post]. Sheesh.
