This is the honest-to-gosh truth. Trust me. Not once since returning from Florida, have I begun a conversation regarding the extreme weather that greeted us. NOT ONCE have I brought up the bone-chilling temperatures!
All of you said, "Hey! Welcome home doggone it! Man you sure screwed up coming back to this cold." We chuckle and I make a mark on my thermometer as another one BRINGING IT UP first.
NOT ONCE have I mentioned the life-threatening condition that can result from being outside in this godforsaken wind-whipped, ice-covered prairie. (Don't get me wrong, I DO say bad things about the weather. I just don't BRING IT UP first.)
If someone says " Are you sorry you came back to this record gol' dang weather?" I say, "no, I'm glad to be home again. I just wish I was still in Naples."
The fact of the matter is, I AM glad to be home with my KFGO co-workers, my bar buddies, family, and the Kee-Kee birds of North Dakota .....(Have you heard any?)
