The DJ said, “Tons of snow today. Park your cars on the odd-numbered side of the street.” The husband did it. Two days later the DJ said, “More snow today. Park on the even-numbered side.” The next day the DJ said “More snow!” but just then the radio died. Josh said, “What are we supposed to do now?” His wife said, “Just leave the car in the garage today.”
I love the first snow of the season. There’s something magical about it, or so it seems. We always celebrate that night unless Heather gets stuck in traffic because people lose their minds driving in the snow. Its no doubt the same in most cities that get a lot of snow.
If Heather is really upset about it I let her punch me hard in the face. Just once so she can get it out of her system and we can have a good evening, even while holding an ice pick. I’m seriously considering getting one of those punching bag that looks almost real. Its cheaper than ER visits.
If she gets home around her regular time, we celebrate the first snow with fresh chili from from a can, homemade cornbread from the market deli. We toast from the wine box and have a great time until one of us loses our fresh dinner. Its normally Heather so get my face ready for the blow which is coming.
