Things That Don’t Understand WHY I’m Going to Work Today…

Everyone (and everything) in my humble abode was really hoping for a third snow day, but alas, it was not to be. The wintry mix came too little, too late. Of course, by the time I’m ready to come home today, my five-minute drive will be treacherous, but we’ll cross that icy bridge when we come to it, I suppose.


Surprisingly, I’m having more success coming to terms with this than the rest of the household.

“I just…I need more time. Please. Just a little more time.” – my sweatpants

“We’re not prepared for this. We have nothing to offer you today.” – my closet full of real-life clothes

…and finally, Chompers.

“Those boots better be made for walking, because there is no way I’m leaving my cozy carport in this weather.”

We seek to learn, and when academics do not present the answers, we look inside our own beautiful imaginations for the key.
