winter wonderland

In Uncategorized on February 5, 2009 at 2:15 am

note to everyone moaning that ‘a few inches of snow wouldn’t have brought moscow/berlin/new york to a halt’ and demanding squadrons of snowploughs and mountains of grit. look, here’s the deal. every now and then we get proper snow. not that grey slush that looks like wet sugar. not freezing fog. not hail. but, proper sledgable, snowmanable, snowballable snow.

and when that happens we all pretend, from students to bosses to workers, from royals to commoners, that WE CAN’T POSSIBLY MAKE IT IN TODAY. it’s a lie ok? like religion, or patriotism, it might be a useful lie, making society run all the smoother, but it’s a lie all the same.

so, for one day a year, just put your feet up, and give it a rest.
