To begin with, its been wicked, wicked cold out. For weeks. Like, really cold. So cold that your nose can’t run, but you can experience snotsickles.
I woke up yesterday and looked out my kitchen window.
Holy Hell Frozen Over! -20 degrees!!?
I could hardly believe it. I didn’t want to believe it!
But I live in the age of Facebook, so I grabbed my phone and took a picture. I wanted to show everybody how stoic I am, how strong and brave! I snapped the photo, I posted it, I went to work.
And started laughing and pointing.
“Oh, my God!”, they crowed, “Where did you get this picture of a witch?”
They completely ignored the low temp, which was all I saw.
They were totally caught by my scary reflection, which I never noticed.
Goes to show you: kids always see the world in new and exciting ways. They find a way to laugh, and to make me laugh.
Even when its twenty below, and the scary old witch is me.
