While we were on our way to a meeting this afternoon and shortly after discussing which local celebrities we would try to get to show up at the fundraiser this weekend, this happened:
Me: It’s supposed to be cold this weekend. Like a high of 40 at most. I guess we deserve it though for the awesome November we’ve had. Can’t avoid winter forever.
Pens Fan: Yeah. But if you think about it, winter is already almost over.
Me: Um. Winter hasn’t even STARTED.
Pens Fan: But think, this week is Thanksgiving and before we know it, it will be Christmas and New Years and then playoff football. Then we just need to get through a few weeks in February and then March is like so-so and then it’s April. Winter, you see, is already almost over. [blink] [blink]
Me: Wow. You are a HELL of an optimist.
Speaking of winter, while you’re waiting for What They’re Really Thinking, which will be posted tonight and which will involve “hos” of some sort, why not go read my latest column at Pittsburgh Magazine, this one which will appear in December’s edition. It’s all about surviving winter here in Pittsburgh.
‘Tis the Season!
And also, that illustration they made of me? Don’t ever let it be said I can’t laugh at myself.
