I will Surrender and Daydream.
So I give. I’m throwing my hands up in the air and walking away, waving the white flag. This is snow day number 3, we haven’t been out of the house since Sunday, I think I am starting to go stir crazy. Must get out. Now to top it off I am trying to talk myself out of being sick. Yes..sick. What the crap? Completely not cool. I usually get sick one time in the winter and once in the spring/summer. Now this is the 3rd time since November! I am trying my damnedest not to let this get full blown. I had a little itchy itch in the back of my nose yesterday and my chest felt funny, well over night I couldn’t breath which led to furry teeth this morning. So gross.
I don’t have the time this go around to be sick, not that I ever have the time to schedule in a cold, but I have a friend coming into town on Friday with her two little ones and I just can’t be sick. I can’t be sick around her kiddos, I have mass amounts of wine to drink with her, many conversations to have, 4 kids to keep busy and happy, I want to take her out, want to be human while she is here. I am standing by with the eviction letter ready to slap it on the door of Mr. Cold and his little orange fuzzy friends. I can hear you in there with your music thumping and your cheering and laughing. Your party will soon be over..stopped…so drink your last drink because…this is last call bitches.
I survived yesterday as you can see. I never did break out the alcohol, but came close a couple of times. No wiener snowman in the front yard either. But lets remember this is day 3 of the snow days…anything can happen..anything is possible. If they are out again tomorrow I might lose my shit. It was snowing again this morning. I have already seen more snow here this winter than I have the 7 years I have lived here. I will so kick Mother Nature’s ass if I ever see her. I know Ka-raht-a!
I will totally pull a Spongebob and karatay chop her in the boobie.
So today I will daydream, daydream about somewhere warm, tropical, beautiful. I will imagine I am in Key West sipping on a Banana Daiquiri at the Hog’s Breath Saloon, listening to a good band and watching the people pass by as they walk up and down Duval Street. I will take myself back 2 years when B and I were there on jet skis out in the keys by ourselves riding as fast as we can hitting waves, just the two of us out on the emerald water. I will imagine the salt taste in my mouth as the spray would come up and hit my face (the water people, get your heads out of the gutter, geesh). I will go back to B and I parasailing over the water and having the time of our lives. I will close my eyes and smell the ocean and hear the boats passing by. Instead of the snow I will see the beautiful water and the most fabulous sunset you have ever seen.
