DIARY OF A SNOW SHOVELER:
(This humorous but obviously fictional tale was forwarded to me through email by Joanna of Kalamazoo, Michigan. The original author is unknown.)
December 8: 6:00 PM. It started to snow. The first snow of the season and the wife and I took our cocktails and sat for hours by the window watching the huge soft flakes drift down from heaven. It looked like a Grandma Moses Print. So romantic we felt like newlyweds again. I love snow!
December 9: We woke to a beautiful blanket of crystal white snow covering every inch of the landscape. What a fantastic sight! Can there be a more lovely place in the Whole World? Moving here was the best idea I've ever had. Shoveled for the first time in years and felt like a boy again. I did both our driveway and the sidewalks. This afternoon the snow plow came along and covered up the sidewalks and closed in the driveway, so I got to shovel again. What a perfect life.
December 12: The sun has melted all our lovely snow. Such a disappointment. My neighbor tells me not to worry, we'll definitely have a white Christmas. No snow on Christmas would be awful! Bob says we'll have so much snow by the end of winter, that I'll never want to see snow again. I don't think that's possible. Bob is such a nice man. I'm glad he's our neighbor.
December 14: Snow, lovely snow! 8" last night. The temperature dropped to -20. The cold makes everything sparkle so. The wind took my breath away, but I warmed up by shoveling the driveway and sidewalks. This is the life! The snowplow came back this afternoon and buried everything again. I didn't realize I would have to do quite this much shoveling, but I'll certainly get back in shape this way. I wish I wouldn't huff and puff so.
December 15: 20 inches of snow fell. Sold my van and bought a 4x4 Blazer. Bought snow tires for the wife's car and 2 extra snow shovels. Stocked the freezer. The wife wants a wood stove in case the electricity goes out. I think that's silly. We aren't in Alaska after all.
December 16: Ice storm this morning. Fell on my butt on the ice in the driveway putting down salt. The wife laughted for an hour, which I think was very cruel.
December 17: Still way below freezing. Roads are too icy to go anywhere. Electricity was off for 5 hours. I had to pile the blankets on to stay warm. Nothing to do but watch TV with the wife. Guess I should've bought a wood stove. I can't believe I'm freezing to death in my own living room!
December 20: Electricity's back on, but had another 14" of the white stuff last night. More shoveling. Took all day. The snowplow came by twice. Tried to find a neighbor kid to shovel, but they said they're too busy playing hockey. I think they're lying. Called the only hardware store around to see about buying a snow blower and they're out. Might have another shipment in March. I think they're lying. Bob says I have to shovel or the city will have it done and bill me. I think he's lying.
December 21: The city did my plowing and charged me. I hate it when Bob's right!
December 22: Bob was right about a white Christmas because 13 inches fell today, and it's so cold it probably won't melt till August! Took me 45 minutes to get all dressed up to go out to shovel, but by that time I was too tired to shovel. I tried to hire Bob who has a plow on his truck for the rest of the winter, but he says he's too busy. I think he's lying.
December 23: Only 2" of snow today. And it warmed up to 0. The wife wanted me to decorate the front of the house this morning. What, is she...nuts??? Why didn't she tell me to do that a month ago? She says she did but I think she's lying.
December 24: 6". Snow packed so hard by snowplow that I broke the shovel. Thought I was having a heart attack. If I ever catch the guy who drives that snowplow, I'll drag him through the snow by his hair! I know he hides around the corner and waits for me to finish shoveling and then he comes down the street at a 100 miles an hour and throws snow all over where I've just been! Tonight the wife wanted me to sing Christmas carols with her and open our presents, but I was too busy watching for the snowplow.
December 25: Merry Christmas. 20 more inches of the !=3D@x@!x!x1 slop tonight. Snowed in. The idea of shoveling makes my blood boil! I hate the snow! Then the snowplow driver came by asking for a donation and I hit him over the head with my shovel. The wife says I have a bad attitude. I think she's lying. If I have to watch "It's a Wonderful Life" one more time, I'm going to scream!
December 26: Still snowed in. Why did I ever move here?
December 27: Temperature dropped to -50 and the pipes froze.
December 28: Warmed up to above -30. Still snowed in.
December 29: 10 more inches. Bob says I have to shovel the roof or it could cave in. That's the silliest thing I ever heard! How dumb does he think I am?
December 30: Roof caved in. The snowplow driver is suing me for a million dollars for the bump on his head. The wife went home to her mother. 9" predicted.
December 31: Set fire to what's left of the house. No more shoveling.
January 8: I feel so good. I just love those little white pills they keep giving me. Why am I strapped to the bed? Why is everyone wearing white coats?
WHAT'S THE MEANING OF EASTER?
A chemist, a veterinarian, and a meteorologist decide to go into church ministry. They all apply at the same church on the same day. One by one they all get interviewed by the elders and deacons of the church.
The veterinarian gets interviewed first and the elders and deacons ask him, "What's the meaning of Easter?"
The veterinarian, of course having a good deal of concern about animals, says, "Oh, that's easy. That's the time when the Easter bunny gives eggs to everyone."
The elders and deacons say to him, "No, I'm sorry. That's not the answer that we're looking for. Thank you for your time. Next."
The chemist comes in next, and they ask him the same question: "What's the meaning of Easter?"
The chemist, of course being concerned with the chemistry side of things, says, "Oh, that's easy. That's the time that we color all of the Easter eggs."
They say to him, "Nope! I'm sorry, but that's not the answer we're looking for. Next."
Finally the meteorologist comes in to be interviewed, and once again the question gets asked, "What is the meaning of Easter?"
The meteorologist says, "Oh, sure, I know what that is. That's the time Jesus Christ rose from the dead."
The deacons and elders were quite impressed! This looked like the one that they were looking for!
"What happened after that?" one of the deacons asked.
"I'm not sure," the meteorologist responded. "I think he came out of the tomb and saw his shadow."
