The Weather Outside is Frightful.
A friend sent an email yesterday of Jeff Foxworthy jokes..."You know you live in Minnesota if..." type statements. The funniest one was, "You know you live in Minnesota if you always carry jumper cables in your car...and your girlfriend know how to use them." But the one that hit home this morning (and reminded me of my crazy neighbor and running buddy who challenged the middle Wild One to a contest to see who could wear shorts the longest...I think they tied somewhere around the beginning of November) was,"You know you live in Minnesota if you have worn shorts and a parka...at the same time." I was up most of the night last night, so I was feeling pretty good when I got the tall Wild One up and out of the house...on time. It wasn't until she got out of the car and walked toward the bus that I fully understood what she was wearing. Pretty much shorts and a parka (it was of the vest variety...fits better in the small lockers...but it did have a fur lined hood). I felt a little better when I remembered that it is "Spirit Week" and today is slated for wearing school colors...she decided on her soccer uniform, shorts and all. Oh well, she probably won't be the only one...I hope.
