An Icy Morning
Sometimes I wish that it were more standard for employers to give people federal holidays off. I was *really* wishing that as I braved all the ice this morning. My front steps were especially treacherous but I managed to get down them without killing myself. I managed to scrape all the ice off my car too even though that took forever. It was just thick enough to make the job difficult but wasn’t thick enough to make the job impossible. Ah well, I was late for work because of the weather but I guess that is just life. Nevertheless, the whole thing – the icy walk, the scraping, the white knuckle drive in, all of it – could have been avoided if only my company had the day off. See, it is all their fault!
