Rick Koster offers weekly lists of ideas, notions and things that must be seen to be believed.
Five actual quotes - in order - from the household of Eileen Jenkins and Rick Koster since Thanksgiving.
1. "Wow! That's a beautiful snowfall. It looks like a Christmas card!"
"I hate snow."
2. "My God! Did you just knock over that kid's snowman?!"
"Yes, Rick, I did. What are you gonna do about it?"
3."Did you just MELT that kid's snowman with a blowtorch?!"
"You're damned right I did, Eileen."
4. "I wish winter was a human so I could beat it with a tire iron."
5. On the observation by an obnoxiously cheerful neighbor that, "At least we're not in Minneapolis or Chicago. Those poor people REALLY have it bad!"
Me: "Screw Minneapolis and Chicago. All I know is I'm in stinkin' New London, Connecticut, and it's 2 (freaking) degrees!"
