Letters of Intent

Hosted by Julie over at Foursons, it's Letters of Intent. As Julie says each Friday, "It's Friday and time for your Letters of Intent! Let's have it...the good, the bad, the ugly of your week written in letter form and signed by you. Be sure to grab my button from your left sidebar and link up at the bottom. If you're writing about the bad or the ugly this week get it all out now so that you can start your weekend fresh without any of this week's baggage hanging around and spoiling things. I look forward to your Letters of Intent!"


Letters of Intent


Dear Mother Nature,
In case you have forgotten, this is southeast Texas that I live in, where it's never really that cold and it only very rarely snows or freezes. Somehow, you've confused Texas with Calgary or something cuz lately it has snowed and now we're in for several days of constant below freezing temperatures. We are not prepared for this type of weather. More importantly, my toes do NOT appreciate having to be cooped up in closed toed shoes for days and weeks on end. I gave up wearing flip flops to work when I accepted this new job of mine, most likely that wasn't the smartest thing I ever did, but my bill collectors are sure happy I did it. I did not, however, intend to have to wear closed toed shoes every day, I just didn't. I have some really cute open toed shoes and sandals that are acceptable for this stuffy corporate atmosphere I know work in, but YOU my dear Mother Nature, are KILLING ME with coldness and I think you are seriously trying to make my toes hate me with a passion. Please, take your freezing cold ass weather to Canada where it belongs. People that live there are well aware of the weather conditions and they are prepared for it, us Texans, we aren't , we may very well be prepared to shoot our own dinner and be prepared with enough guns and ammo to survive in our very own compounds should the need ever arise, but the cold, it will kill us Texans every single time.

Sincerely,
The crazy bitch down here in Texas with the frozen toes

  1. I'm with ya sista! Why spend all that time in the nail salon picking out the perfect shade of red to have my toes painted if I'm going to have to wear boots & closed-toes. And don't get me started on socks!

  2. How dare Mother Nature put the freeze on your open toe shoes! I am sick of the FL weather. Mother Nature can't make up her mind here... warm one day, freezing cold the next. Ugh.

  3. Bawahahaha! "we may very well be prepared to shoot our own dinner and be prepared with enough guns and ammo to survive in our very own compounds should the need ever arise"

    Classic. Pure hilarity summed up right there. I love it! There's just something about compounds and TX that go hand in hand.

    I'm wearing my snow boots that I bought for our vacation to New Mexico today. What?! We are having the coldest temperatures in two decades over here in S. Central TX. It would be nice if the white stuff would actually fall from the sky now that we actually have the right temperatures. But NOOO- it just has to be FREEZING and windy to make us miserable. No fun allowed.

    Thanks for linking up and thanks for the laugh!

  5. Closed toed shoes & long pants are good for you, treat it as a break from pedicures and shaving!! We hit temps high enough today that the snow was melting off my deck ... I found my ashtray finally and my depressed cat was able to walk all the way to the garage. Sweet!

  6. I don't think you'd survive the chilly toes in the northwest :) Though I do keep the house warm so I immediately kick off any shoes and run around with bare toesies any chance I get. Hope you get some warmer weather soon!

  7. I sucked it up and wore some ballet flats the other day instead of my usual flip flops and someone commented that my shoes were inappropriate and my feet must be freezing. Stupid Yankee.
