End Your Lying, Boldly Declare: 'I Hate Winter'
If there's one thing I hate, it's those perky fresh-faced freaks telling me how much they just love winter.
"The snow, the cold, bundling all up for a brisk walk in that beautiful sparkling air. It's so refreshing!" they say.
It stinks. Having surgery is more fun than winter. Pick a ward, any ward. They cover you up with one of those nice heated blankets, give you drugs. You lie around, watch Jerry Springer, get a big thrill out of having your first post-op movement.
You've got something positive to think about -- your repair -- and a brighter future to look forward to. Nurses pamper you, friends bring chocolates, and each day of healing brings improvement. So... wherever you are, whatever you're doing right now, dig deep for the courage to finally be heard, stand and deliver your message!
The relief and the freedom you'll feel will astound you.
Besides, I really believe those people who claim to love winter are lying, self-deluded, in denial, or just seriously in need of professional help.
Really, what's to like? I love my yard, but right now, like most of you, I'm only using about 5% of it, and I have to shovel to get at it.
