hoping for warmer weatherPosted: October 28, 2012
October now chills the bones, whispering “Stay in, stay in” as the wind pushes down from the cold cold north. We turn to thoughts of mulled wines, and hearty soups and vacations to the warmer places.
When my daughter was thinking of a place to go for spring break with seven of her sorority sisters I told her to call Paul, a friend my age who lived alone and had just built a house there.
Paul agreed, and when I talked to him later he said he would stock up for the visit.
“Paul, you don’t need to do that, they can pay for their own food, it’s enough of you to let them stay.”
He just laughed. “Do you know how much toilet paper eight girls are going to use?”
