Elly versus the weather......

I'm going to start this entry by making a confession: I'm not really all that fond of Winter. Like a lot of Canadians, I associate it with cold, blustery days and clear, chilly nights, icy roads and sidewalks, snowdrifts, windchill, freezing rain, the possibilty of freezing pipes, slush, bundling up like Nanook of the North and still feeling half-frozen, plow drivers who seem Hell-bent on trying to bury people alive and a lot of other fun things. Where I differ from Elly is that I can take the stress without scrunching up my face or thinking that the sky is mad at me. I mean, it's Winter; nobody really likes it but we've got to be like John and make the best of things instead of standing in the hallway frowning and bellowing at Farley for shaking all over the carpet because we'd rather NOT have him come in the garage and do that, oh no, not US because that would mean that John was right all along. At this point, of course, you'd probably tell yourself that at least when she goes on her kid-free vacations, she can calm down; you'd be dead wrong, though. When she goes down South, she complains about it being sticky hot, how they pretend that they don't understand English no matter HOW LOUD SHE SHOUTS and whinges about catching tropical diseases. It seems, at least to me, that the only place Elly would truly be happy is some vast, featureless, climate-controlled corridor with nothing to distract her attention or stir her baffling, ill-focused discontent.
