This time, it was just an annoyance.
It was just something to make you say “Really? Snow? In October?”
It was a few inches this time, a lot of it gone the next day, a lot of it easily scraped away with leaves.
A first for the neighbor’s puppy, just tall enough to bound through.
A chance for local news crews to practice their snow coverage.
It won’t always be this way. There will be days with more, and it will last longer.
But this time, it was just an annoyance.
WHAT I WROTE
Going to the beach is a great way to get away from the world. The problem is that the world is waiting for you when you get back.
WHAT I TALKED ABOUT
I find myself worrying about things so odd, there has to be a word for it.
AND SPEAKING OF WHAT I TALKED ABOUT …
So I talked about a thing, based on a story … that apparently is so full of crap its eyes are brown. I feel bad about this, and took my post down.
STUFF I READ
Jackie loves baseball, but this year, it was never more than a distraction.
Pea Green knows it’s important to pass down family traditions.
Rosie has lost touch with some people along the way, and I can vouch that it stinks when it happens for no reason other than life happening.
Renata has all the best tricks for making friends in your 20s, and I have a feeling we would have gotten along well had we met in college. (This would have required me to be considerably younger, but … .)
The Single Vegas Girl got an offer that she somehow managed to refuse.
Michelle thinks one kind of Halloween costume is terribly unimaginative.
The Huntress is struggling with her desire to write.
Cama correctly notes a difficult question to answer these days … “How are you?”
Zoe’s fighting imposter syndrome.
Bex’s earliest memory is a funny one … well, it’s funny now. I’m not sure she found it so funny then.
Vee won an award. She’s proud. She should be.
TWEETS I LIKED
I jokingly asked what I had to do to get two Swiss passports (although I probably meant visas), but no luck.
We were discussing people getting yurts for Tuesday night.
I believe the term for this carving is “on brand.”
