It’s officially spring now! The Vernal Equinox today signifies the end of winter. Rejoice in the fact that you no longer have to deal with these wintry nuisances.
Driving in the snow.
Wearing slippers out of necessity.
Dressing in layers. Each morning is no longer a strategy meeting with yourself based on actual outdoor temperature and potential indoor temperature.
Blowing your constantly runny nose.
Applying lotion and lip balm every ten minutes. You never look this happy during the war against dry skin.
Shocking yourself on a door knob.
Trying to convince your apathetic cat to sit on you. Please share your furry warmth, cat.
Drinking terrible hot chocolate. No more attempting to buy relief from the cold in the form of hot brown water.
Shoveling. So much shoveling.
Ducking into stores for a moment of warmth and pretending to be interested in whatever they’re selling.
Wearing encumbering jackets.
Watching the sparkling white snow turn into a brown sludge.
Listening to friends in warm climates brag about their beautiful weather. Shut up, friends.
Fantasizing about moving to warm places.
Seeing your own breath.
Slipping on ice, injuring body and pride.
Covering up from head to toe. It’s been forever since your arms and legs felt direct sunlight.
Rocking some pretty bad hat hair. (When you don’t look like Jessica Biel.)
Listening to people complain about how cold it is.
Wishing it weren’t winter anymore.
