while on lunch break at work, i was waxing philosophic about my love of snow, when a new to me friend anna said with surprise, “but you hate vermont!” this is a perfect opportunity to explain, i love snow, i love sledding, i love bleeding heart liberals aka bernie sanders, i love our vermont friends, and miss them terribly. i do not miss having to drive 45 minutes to see a movie, walking the four streets in town deserted at sun down, having five restaurants to chose between. in short, if vermont were a city, i’d be pretty happy there. alas, the state is a really small town. not my jam.
that said, SNOW!!!!!!!!!! it was the first substantial snow storm we’ve seen in berlin. it’s 46 degrees today, and sunny, so i figured now that was perfect time for a “last week” retrospective.
when i got home from work, i badgered my hard working man to leave the house and tromp in the snow before his flight to 75 degree mexico city. lame.
a good three inches when i got out of work!sledding on the “hill” by our house. there are almost no hills in berlin. he’s always blurry in photographs. my cousins are convinced he’s a ghost. the same fist that’s on our wall back in the states! “Be careful, it’s slippery.”
fairy tale theater. super cool. we have tickets for the end of february. we don’t have our sled here in berlin, so i had to make due with whooshing down the snowy slides eddie’s postmodern hat. snow on a hat composed of the map of ski trails.
