Out With the Old

This is about as hardcore as I get.

We’re getting snow. A lot of it. So much of it that once it started sticking to the roads, our door counts dropped precipitously. We started out with counts over 200 but by 14:00 we were struggling to hit 120. It just got lower from there. Though we were selling a lot of alcohol. You’d think it was a holiday or something.

It’s the last day of 2018. You know, all those times I said, “Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!” in the middle of April were a joke. I didn’t think the year would go by that quickly. As the saying goes, “The years are short but the days are long.”

 I don’t have to work tomorrow. The warehouse is closed. It’s still surprising to me; I don’t have to worry about working another holiday again. It’s nothing like Wal-Mart, where I worked every last damn one of them. I enjoy my job so much, it doesn’t feel like work to me. That’s a drastic change.

Prime’s getting better, albeit slowly. Whatever this is, do your best to avoid it. It’s bad, trust me. As of right now, hand sanitizer is my constant companion, for obvious reasons.

We’ve gotten at least two inches of snow and the plows haven’t been down our road once. Our city’s philosophy? Wait until July to send out the snowplow. The shit will be melted by then.

About Silverwynde

I'm a Transformers fan, Pokémon player, Brewers fan and all-out general nerd. I rescue abandoned Golett, collect as many Bumblebee decoys and figures as I can find and I've attended every BotCon--official and non--since 1999. I'm also happily married to a fellow Transfan named Prime and we were both owned by a very intelligent half-Siamese cat, who crossed the Rainbow Bridge on June 16, 2018. We still miss him. But we're now the acting staff of a Maine Coon kitty named Lulu, who pretty much rules the house. Not that we're complaining about that.
