In a parking lot today under a miserably cold rain that turned briefly to snow, a country woman walking into the Dollar Store alongside her teenage son observed, “Oh great. It’s snowing.”
Amused, I offered, “I’m wearing sandals!” She replied that she didn’t even have a coat on. I said she was like the Vermonty schoolchildren that wear no coat all winter, or don’t zip it up.
She responded over her shoulder with: “I tell my son before he gets on the school bus, ‘At least wear your boots so I don’t look like an ass.'”
