Dear Minnesota Friends,
Please stop complaining about the snow on Facebook. I do not feel sorry for you. Yes, I know it’s cold and the hairs in your nose are freezing and that you’re sick of shoveling and your car got towed in the St. Paul Snow Emergency. But that just gives you an extra excuse to treat yourself to Caribou and turn on the fireplace!
I can’t think of anything much better than a snow day – those were some of the most joyful days of the year – trapped in the house with nothing that you “need” to do….
I would pay some serious money for a white Christmas right about now. In my perspective, you are the luckiest people on earth. Who doesn’t love a nice fresh coat of snow for Christmas?? Take my word for it, Christmas just doesn’t feel the same when you’re sweating in a tank top. So don’t expect me to give you any sympathy. I would trade places with you in a heartbeat on Christmas day! Another of the many things you have to be thankful for… just wanted to make sure you weren’t taking it for granted!
And P.S., I have yet to receive a single Christmas Card. Please don’t forget about me – I’m starting to get a bit nervous. Feel free to email if you need my address!
And for my CSB/SJU readers, a little memory of the golden years!
