Snow Day

Usually I bitch about the weather in New England. Frankly I hate the friggin cold. Occasionally however you can get me to say I love the snow – when it results in a snow day. I miserably rolled out of bed at 5:30 this morning bemoaning my fate. Looked out the window at the fresh blanket of snow and headed for the computer. Yes!!!! All classes cancelled today due to inclement weather. I quickly found my way back to my still warm bed, eternally thankful for my reprieve. I guess if you live in Florida – you don’t get snow days. Now I have a reason to stay home and catch up on my work. I think my cats have forgotten who I am I’ve been home so little lately. I can’t think of anything better (until I have to shovel…).

Ok, I just found one of those unidentifiable objects on the floor that strikes fear into the heart of any woman. WHAT IS THAT???? Next you find yourself leaning over it going through a mental litany only a cat owner or mother of a small child could possibly conceive

“Is it poop?”

“No. If it isn’t, do I want to know what it is? Probably not.”

“Animal, vegetable or mineral?”

“Definitely animal. Oh God I really can’t handle more frightening mouse parts right now, please not the mouse parts… “

Where’s the tissues? (this is why women are stronger then men, for example, I don’t know any man brave enough to confront the really scary stuff that accumulates in the drain basket in the sink…)

Phew, its safe. A glace at the coffee table brings recognition. It seems my darling husband left his dinner plate on the coffee table last night complete with the piece of steak gristle he found inedible. Guess Simba thought it was inedible too, after he decided to steal it.

That’s my UFO (unidentifiable food object) of the day!
