I live in a place that gets pretty chilly in the wintertime. Muskoka Ontario Canada (google it if you like) Even though I have lived in this general region of Canada for many years, as have my neighbours and family, it seems to surprise me every February as people curse and swear about how damn cold it is outside. Some of my favourite winter time quotes
"It's cold as hell out there" ~~ hmmm I thought hell was all fire and brimstone?
"Gawd it's nipply out today!" ~~ yes the girls agree, thank god for the extra tank top today.
"Do you know how cold it is out there right now?" ~~ not right now, as you can see, I am inside.
"When will winter end???" ~~~hmmm.. usually around March 20th
"I can't take this anymore" ~~~ whatcha gonna do about it then huh? What exactly do you plan to do to winter?
"Why does it have to be so cold?" ~~ We live in Canada, OMG, stop acting like it's your first winter here and you came from some island in the south pacific.
"I hate winter" ~~ yeah, me too, it's nice up until about January 2nd, then it just sucks wang man, but you know what? It's a nice trade off for socialized medicine, democracy, cleaner air, cleaner soil, beautiful lakes and rivers and streams, gorgeous sunsets, and summer.... ah summer, you wonderful, warm blanket that wraps us all up for a good 10 weeks every year, I miss you and I'll see you soon, in the meantime I'll try hard to keep everyone from driving me insane with their winter whining..
