Careen down a hill, fly up over your brother's skateboard
ramp and narrowly miss a dousing in the small creek,
Join the neighborhood snowball fight,
Feel the freedom of cold wind rushing against your face and frozen
earth skimming under your knees
Taste clumps of mud, ice, and ornamental grasses
on your way facefirst downhill,
Become inexplicably petulant and refuse to sled,
walk in, touch or look at snow
And what's a snow day without snow day treats:
And homemade hot chocolate.
The neighborhood boys were amazed that hot chocolate could be made from scratch. They couldn't believe how yummy it was. They drank it down and then made requests 3 more times in the subsequent days for homemade hot chocolate.
And what do you do on a Snow Day if you're 16, just got over the stomach flu, and are way too grown up to ride your cousin's borrowed snow board down a steep hill and up over your brother's skateboard ramp? You offer to play Stardoll on the computer with your petulant little sister. (Thanks, Sweetie!)
Well, we won't see a Snow Day THIS great for another decade! Happy Snow Day Everyone!
