Still rasslin' the rhino
A few days late is the maple tree. Yes, we have sun. It's colder than a housemother's heart on Valentine's day when no one bought her chocolates. This is a bright sunny day that will make you suffer! The wind will chap any exposed skin in minutes. Your eyeballs dry out, your nose hairs freeze and and your ears cling to the sides of your head like terrified bats. And I have seen college kids out in this wearing flip-flops and baggy shorts. I bet Mr. Happy was shrunk up like a stack of nickels, and the Balsam boys had crept back into the body.
I took GED tests to the jail today. This is the sky as I was preparing to head out. I got to drive about five miles squinting into the rising sun. And, by God, I LIKED it! Sunlight, bouncing off the back of the retina triggers happy endorphins and I'll take those any ol time they're available. Thank you!
