It's just icy today. We get just enough snow to impact the city a few times a year but not enough to teach any of us how to drive properly in it. It's good to admit that you can't drive in the snow- there is no shame in that. With this self realization you know that you have to drive cautiously, with enough room between the next driver.

My drive to work is relatively quick, the only treacherous part is a hill that goes through the woods. This hill becomes a mess when it snows. I've gone down that hill sideways before. I have seen hundreds of wrecks on this little stretch and strangely enough they all have involved SUV's.

I have a theory about SUV's or perhaps more so about their drivers. SUV's a probably very good in hilly and snowy conditions, but just because you have a car that is made for these conditions doesn't make you any better a driver. I'm amazed at how often an SUV will ride right up on your ass in crappy weather.

K- is home today, working remote because of the weather. I'm thinking we need a little Indian food and a large fire in the fireplace tonight. I'd like to have a little ice cream to finish the day but K- usually makes me feel guilty about buying this little treat which takes some of the pleasure out it. I'm of the mind that if I don't drink or smoke anymore I should be allowed to eat ice cream.

I know it probably doesn't matter, but your writing really is fun to read. I've been reading some of your very first posts. You style reminds me of some of my favorite authors. Who am I, but I think its good stuff.

Ice cream is what makes life worth living. It, like, makes the world keep spinning.
