There are three things I cannot tolerate...1)being tickled, 2)being smacked on the back too hard with a flat hand and 3)being hit with something wet and cold. Dracen has accomplished two of those things this week and has also suddenly begun sneaking up behind me, jumping onto my back and demanding a piggyback ride which wouldn't be all that bad if he didn't wrap his kung fu gripping fingers around my neck, forcing my instincts into survival mode.
The threat of snow prompted our school board to make an early decision yesterday afternoon, placing us on a three hour delay today but although we only ended up getting about an inch here at my house, the phone woke me at 7:30 this morning with a message that school had been cancelled for the day. I turned off the alarm and slept until 10:30. Please don't judge. I was exhausted from all the piggyback riding.
Anyway, I was a little disappointed when I finally got up and looked out the window. I was hoping to see more than an inch, already melting since the temps. had risen above the freezing mark. But seeing the blue skies and sunshine made me happy since it is the first time it has made an appearance since I can't even remember when. I was beginning to wonder if I should Google "how to make an arc".
Somehow I don't think the weather we've experienced this week was what Mr. Taylor envisioned when he wrote Carolina In My Mind. I'm just saying. It's good to be back in the world of sunshine again...
And now that I'm recalling the lyrics to that song I'm wondering what he meant by "Ain't it just like a friend of mine to hit me from behind". Funny how I never gave any thought to that line before but he sings it like it's a good thing. Why would you want someone to hit you from behind? (See above the 3 things I find intolerable).
Maybe he was "feeling the moonshine" a little too much when he wrote that line.
And I think I'll end on that note.
Wishing you all a happy weekend of blue skies, sunshine and no hits from behind.
