Winter Blues

I don’t know if you’re like me, but I am so over this whole never-ending winter deali-o we have going on.  I mean, for reals. All the winter holidays are over, so let’s move on to not-winter.

Mmm-kay?

But wouldn’t it be awesome if I could just demand that it was not-winter and then it would actually be not-winter? Yes. Yes, I do believe that would be awesome.

Summer is just better than winter.  Hot is better than cold. Always. (Except for in the case of ice cream. That should not be served warm.)Here is why:

During the summer, you can still have snow. Just in the flavored, rainbow-y cupful variety. Snowcones are way better than blizzards.

During the summer, if your feet get wet, it’s okay. During the winter you might have to get them amputated if this happens.

During the summer you don’t have to wear 6000 layers.  And then carry 5000 of them home when it isn’t -36 anymore.

During the summer, there is sun. And it shines and shines and shines. And you can stay up really late because the sun is still shining.

Fireworks are more fun in the summer because you’re not freezing your pants off watching them.

Picnics, pie, popsicles, and popcorn are just  better in the summer.

People are just happier in the summer. It’s a medical fact, people.  Sunshine = happiness.

Ultimately, I just really want the groundhog to be right. Less winter. Sooner spring. All that jazz.

Mostly, I’m just tired of having frozen toes and ears. Here’s to an early summer!
