Quit your bitching

So, one of my little hobbies is to evesdrop on everyone around me. I do this mostly as I move around my work week. On the train. Walking down the street. Whatever. What was the number one topic this week? The freaking weather. Ok, so for my readers that do not live in Chicago, this week's weather was a bit chilly, mostly overcast, and rainy. Last night, major rainy. So, all week people have been pissing and moaning to one and other about the terrible weather, the bad weather, how tired they are of the weather, blah blah blah. What this week's weather is: Wet. Chilly. Hair frizzing (God Damn It). A little inconvienient. Spring like. What this week's weather ISN'T: Fucking 10 below zero with a 30 below zero wind chill. Snowing. Icy. Black as midnight at noon. Freezing rain. Blizzarding. Winter like. So, Shut up. Seriously. Chicagoans are a very fickle bunch when it comes to our sports teams and our weather. If it's that bad, and such a horrible strain on your day, move. NO one wants you here anyway.

OMG. I knew you were a yenta sister like AG. To the point that I know hear, "Sweetheart, if you are going to eat dinner with me, you have to focus on me. Not those people over there because they have no effect on your life."

Boston and Seattle are the same with the weather. I always reply, Given that I am still mourning my Bubie, I could see how a little rain can really be that upsetting for you.

That usually shuts them up!

I've been kinda ambivalent to all the weather talk I've been hearing from people. Since I've read your post, all this complaining is really starting to annoy me.

I don't live in an area where I hear a whole lot of conversations and I almost miss it. Maybe I'll go wander through the wet woods today.
