The universe is conspiring against me.

As I got out of the shower this morning, Mike’s phone rang. I thought, “Is it possible we have a two-hour delay? Maybe it’s so cold the buses can’t start?”

Actually, we had a two-hour delay because . . . wait for it . . . it snowed! It snowed! And this is the south. It doesn’t snow here. So we have no idea what to do. This is something I really like about the south. I like to be home when it’s cold and snowy. I like to drink warm beverages and snuggle under blankets. So I was very pleased with this turn of events. Except for the part where each of our phones rang three times with a different two-hour delay message. Six phone calls! Six! To tell us about a two-hour delay!

However, the snow did cause us to have the following conversation:

MIKE: I can’t believe it snowed!

KARI: It’s so pretty!

MIKE: Last night we went to see The Santaland Diaries. And now it’s snowing.


MIKE: Yes! It’s like Christmas!


MIKE: Yes! It’s time for you to be in a Christmas spirit!


MIKE: You won those tickets and now it snowed. I think God is trying to tell you something.

KARI: I don’t think that’s how it works.

MIKE: Merry Christmas! Let’s play some Christmas music!

He’s been singing Christmas songs ever since he got up. Help, help, I’m being repressed!
