can anything good come of winter?
on the drive with kenny jones – we’ve been doing our best to keep warm…and dry. here in the hashimite kingdom of jordan we’re experiencing a winter wonderland…kind of…but not really. during the winter months in amman, it gets cold and the skies open up.
and apparently it’s official – the winter months are here. it’s been raining for 2 days straight. and we haven’t seen sunshine for longer than that. did i mention IT’S FRIGGIN’ FREEZING! here in lies the problem…
I DON’T DO WINTER!
the drive contingent was quick to point out that the cold & rain was here to stay. have a listen to them breaking the bad news to me on the show…
i still don’t understand the listeners’ fascination (or even tolerance) of winter. their examples of the “good things” that come from winter were mediocre, at best.
the holidays i can get on board with. i do love christmas, thanksgiving and new years. but a nicely decorated palm tree – just as nice as a douglas fir!
and winter fashion – i can do without it. board shorts, flip-flops and t-shirt (which is completely optional) on a nice sandy beach somewhere is definitely – without a doubt, what i prefer.
looks like i may have to break down do something i haven’t had to do for years and that’s purchase a coat.
maybe not quite like that one ~~~~~>
but you’ve gotta cut me some slack, i haven’t had to shop for one for a while.
other possible apparel needs: a sweater (or jumper – depending on where you’re from), more than one long sleeved shirt, a hat, wool socks, long underwear and if i have to buy a snow suit…
