Nature can be inconvenient. Here I am, stuck in the snow and unable to do my Valentines Day shopping. I was just telling the wife that this year I was going to get her dozens of roses, chocolates from Austria, a cheese sampler, an assortment of Steiff Teddy Bears, gold and silver necklaces, and a beer helmet. (gag gift) And here I sit, powerless to spend that money.
So far she's taking it well. I've gone out of my way to be nice -- I let her use the good snow shovel, I reminded her to get the sidewalk too, and I didn't criticize that she missed a spot... But she is a little peeved that this is the second year that I've failed to deliver. Yes, I know there was no snow last year. That was the year I couldn't find my car keys. Believe me, I was just as disappointed as she was.
Maybe next year will be better.
