Apparently yesterday was the first day of Winter. We all know how I feel about seasons starting randomly in the middle of the month (not random at all, actually, but moving on) so I won't go on about that today, but rather I thought I'd be an annoying debbie downer a different way, and talk about how much I hate Winter, and why.
Things I hate about Winter:
There is ice on my windshield and it makes it hard to see.
I have to scrape said ice, and that adds time to my morning routine, I'm not a fan of that.
I get ice / snow all over me when I scrape, which of course makes me colder.
You can't use your wipers on the ice, apparently.
You also shouldn't put water in your wiper thingy because apparently it can freeze (who knew? NOT the Australian).
My feet are always cold.
Snow is wet.
The idiot who parks on the road, thus making the snow plow man miss our driveway. Super not fun, rude parking on the street guy.
Everywhere cranking the heat. I'm sweating before I can get my damn coat off.
Getting out of the hot bath or shower. No fun.
I get super complainy. Seriously, I'm so annoying.
The sun deceives me. It's sunshiney and bright because of the snow, but still bloody cold. Rude.
Driving. I do not drive well in the snow, I'm sure I piss people off, but the cocky arrogant bastards who've been driving in the snow since they were like 5 and are sitting up my ass because wah I'm going slow so I don't die - guess what, you're not making it any easier.
Being in the passenger seat. KC is one of those cocky arrogant bastards. Okay, not really, but he's 1000% more comfortable behind the wheel than I am, and I cry just as much in the passenger seat. I just want to stay home please.
KC gets snow days. That's annoying. But he drives me, so that's cool.
Hot tea or hot chocolate makes everything fabulous for like 5 minutes, but then it's empty and I have to make another, but I don't want to get up because cold.
Dirty snow. It's pretty for like 5 minutes.
Permanently wrapping myself in a blanket makes going to the bathroom or leaving the house inconvenient.
Did I mention it's cold. Never mind that December has been unseasonably warm so far, I bet we will be paying for it in like April when Spring doesn't show up.
Things I like about Winter:
I can keep a chapstick in my car and it doesn't melt.
We don't have to mow the grass.
Kentucky isn't as bad as other places, thank Zeus. It could be worse, y'all.
Linking up with Kathy and Nadine.
