hey Stephanie, what did you do last weekend?
Oh, well, I had a great time. I soaked up some sun in the backyard. I went bike riding around town. I even bought a new swimsuit.
A new swimsuit? Oh, so you're assuming that summer will actually come. Given the evidence contrary to that idea, what makes you so confident?
Well, it has always come in the past. I know that this year winter seems to be like an unwanted guest lingering WAY past it's welcome, but I'm still hopeful for change.
Well, I admire your optimism. By the way, did you buy some boots and a coat to go with that swimsuit? Just curious.
Snow, snow go away.
Come again some other day.
Like next winter, perhaps.
(and yes--I did buy a new swimsuit this weekend. I'll have to show it to you all later. Right now I can't bear to look at it while the snowflakes are falling. It's just cruel.)
