Slip-n-Slide

For all you people that like winter: what the hell is wrong with you? I understand like a cool breeze, with little snowflakes, wow so pretty. But to enjoy freezing, snowy, slippy walks home, you have a chemical imbalance in your brain. Anyway, I like summer, summer allows me to sit outside for hours and watch my skin get all crispy and fun. In the winter I’m all pale and unhappy.

Besides hating the snow and the ice, and the slippery sidewalks, what I look forward to the least is the day that I will slip and slide on the ice. I know it will happen, last year was my best year, as I only slipped 13 times; not bad! I really don’t care about falling and hurting myself, I care more about what my fall will look like when my feet slip off the ground and I break the ice in front of me. Sometimes when I’m walking, I imagine the fall, last Sunday, for our first real snowfall here in Iglooville Canada, I pictured me falling head first and sliding all the way down the road hitting a cement post, luckily that wasn’t me, but it did happen to my dog Genius, he’s fine now though, he enjoys running into walls etc.

So far this year I’m 0/1. No falling, no slipping no almost falls; those are the worst because sometimes with the almost falls I want to hold on to the closest stranger next to me. My neighborhood is a little creepy, so I wouldn’t want to hang on to any strangers there.

Anyway, good luck in the ice this winter, everyone!
