Call me crazy but the fact that I haven’t seen the sun in about a week and it’s cold as a mother outside in mid-October leads me to believe this could be a hell of a winter. I really hate cold weather. I hate people who enjoy cold weather even more than the cold weather itself. I have a feeling that the same people who enjoy cold weather are the same people who back into parking spaces, but I digress. Below are my top five reasons I hate winter:
1-Dark in the morning/Dark at night. I wake up and it’s dark outside, I go to work when the sun is out and then by the time I leave work it’s dark again. Perpetual darkness is not my cup of tea. I like to feel that I have a life outside of work.. Who enjoys this besides vampires? Something else I’m over? Vampires. So 2008. I’ll tell you who enjoys it- the same people who get jazzed about Law and Order marathons on a Friday night-that’s who.
2-Walking the boys. People who like winter obviously do not have dogs they walk at six AM when it’s 32 degrees outside because if they did then they would shut their god damn mouths about how they, “just love the crisp, cold weather”. Bitch-I’ll cut you, I swear to God. I can’t feel my god damn hands! It’s cold! Shit!
3-Pale like whoa! Back in Victorian England a sign of beauty was to have the palest skin possible. I would have been the prettiest gal around town!
4-Layering up! I’m sorry but jackets suck balls. Driving with a jacket on makes me feel like I’m getting a perpetual hug from someone I despise. Also a stain is going out and having to lug a jacket around all night. You can’t leave it at home because you’ll freeze but then you’re stuck just standing at the bar with a five pound wool jacket slung over your arm all night. Nice.
5-People talking about snow storms.
Note: I recognize the irony of this statement in a post soley related to the weather. I just really hate being cold.
Personally I don’t “get” talking about the weather. It’s the weather. What else is there to say? It’s hot, it’s cold, it’s raining, it’s sunny. Whatever-who cares? There’s nothing you can do about it so why are we wasting our time here? Richmonders go absolutely bananas at the mere hint of inclement weather. In turn, local news gets equally out of control and covers the WEATHER like it’s the Cuban Missile Crisis. Yes, it snowed a ¼ inch last night. School is cancelled for a fortnight. Neat. Can we talk about something that actually matters (like anything else going on in the world) for a hot sec and break away from doing snow angels on the side of Midlothian Turnpike? Thanks!
