Somebody Blew It

Icy Morning

I was holding on to mom’s arm for dear life, trying to get her from Point A to Point B … from the house to the car. It was an early morning icy misty mess and my mission was to get mom in the car as fast and safely as possible. I am not going to lie, I wanted to be in that car, too. It was one miserable, icy cold, slippery-when-wet morning!

“What is happening out here?” mom yelled. “This is the worst thing that has ever happened to me in my whole life. I am just going to freeze to death right here.”

“Mom, this is the worst thing that has ever happened to me, too, but we are not going to die. We just have to keep moving so I can get you in the car safe and sound. What the heck do you think is going on out here, anyway?”

“I think somebody up there is blowing his nose!”

“I think you are right, mom, and he didn’t even say excuse me.”
