Is it just me or has this January had more snow days than school days?! I know that there are some solid meterological explanations for the record-setting snowfalls but, after eavesdropping on some kids at the bus stop yesterday, I think there may be more to it. Namely, I think our local grammar schoolers have come up with a fool-proof recipe for a snow day. There are four simple steps:
- Flush an ice cube down the toilet
- Put a spoon under your pillow
- Wear your pajamas inside out
- Do a snow dance (Note: this is a free form dance event; no scripted steps. I know because I asked the six year old in charge for specifics!)
Based on last night’s snow dance performance and dutiful following of the recipe above, I can attest that it seems to work! We got the call today at 5:30AM: School is cancelled! SNOW DAY!!!!!!!!!! Hurray!
