The Day After

Posted by Seeking Solace |

We have about a foot of snow at our house. No big deal. The weather-dudes are calling for another foot by Sunday nigh. Still, no big deal. We are kinda of used to it here.

So, what does one do in Lake Effect Snow Central when there is a foot of snow on the ground? Kick back and relax with the beverage of your choice and wait for a break in the weather so that you can go out and shovel. Actually, Husband does all of the shoveling. He refuses to buy a snow blower.

The concert last night was awesome. Completely packed house for Mr. Springsteen and the mighty E. Street Band. What was amazing was the number of parents who brought their kids to the show. Not little kids, but maybe, 10 and up. Although, there was this family with their son who was about 10 or 11 years old. He just seemed really bored throughout the entire show. Any of you who have seen Springsteen know that he plays for a good 2.5 hours, so this was pretty excruciating for this kid.

But, what was painful for Husband and I was that this kid had a serious case of the farts. I mean like rotten egg, sulfuric bombs that probably left some oily spotting (OK, sorry about that. Husband and I have been making one too many Xenical jokes today.). But, damn did it stink. At one point the dad was sitting next to me with his son on his right. Then, the dad traded places with his son so that he would be next to me. Great, thanks a lot.

Moving on....

Well, that's all. Time to shovel.
