I make introductions. That's what I do. I like finding similarities in different, very different people. Like today, I introduced a fellow named Smith who is a former Marine and a doctoral student named Ndambe who is from Uganda.
What do they have in common?
Oh I found it.
They've both lived abroad.
Thank you, thank you... cue meaningful conversation.
Anyway, I have something I'd like to introduce to you.
People, this is snow. Snow, meet the fine people.
What do you two have in common?
What world am I in where it is snowing, real live snow FLAKES (not sleet) on the day after a temperature high of 70-something?
It's just so crazy!
I can remember a grand total of four times that I have watched and been in snow fall. One-- I was in high school. It was night. Stephen and I went outside to investigate. So awesome. Two-- I was on my internship in Washington, D.C. The capitol is gorgeous with a coat of white. Three-- Easter weekend. I was still at the paper and found myself driving all over the city covering stories. Driving through the flurries was like being in a snow globe. Four-- today, about three hours after I was caught blowing hot air on the window and writing my initials. Hohohohahaha ha.
oh oh, it's magic, you know.
