Here comes winter. I hate winter. I hate skating, I hate skiing, I hate snow, I hate ice, I hate everything about the season and stare at the calendar waiting for the first day of spring. It really annoys me when people refer to the beauty of the winter season and how much they love everything about it, including, dare I say, CHRISTMAS.
Well, my annoying winter-loving friend, explain how anything can look beautiful when it’s dead and covered in ice and snow? Where’s the beauty in mucky, dirty slush, treacherous roads and driveways, and bare frozen trees and bushes? To say nothing of winter fashions that include large bulky coats, big goofy boots, puffy gloves and a selection of equally hideous hats that ensure we all look completely idiotic and unappealing. I don’t see it myself but would appreciate it if someone could explain the beautiful winter thing to me. Until then, I wait in my house for the return of my lawn, cursing the ice and snow and anyone that says they love this crap. Oh, and did I mention the upcoming 2010 Winter Olympics? No? Gee…go figure.
