Chill factor -7F
Where are the mushrooms?
I've made no secret about my aversion to extreme cold. That combined with the taxes can make one turn to hallucinogenics in order to "experience" a good time. After all, cabin fever is a serious condition. What to do?
Be the child, once more (still?) Play. Pretend. Imagine. Remember how it was the last time I actually was out on the water. The carpet is the sea, the yard stick a paddle (Greenland stick, actually...but I digress). Then, I wait until morning and cross another day off the calendar and wonder why it is I stay here in this tax hell of winter. Then I remember: family and friends, and I go looking for the mushrooms.
Paddle safe...
