Weather Or Not

I don’t do well in the cold. These couple of weeks of frigid temperatures have taken their toll. To put mildly…I’VE BEEN FUCKING MISERABLE.

Come to think of it, I also pale in heat, rain, snow, hail and sleet. I totally get why people move south as they get older and I may be one of them soon.

This morning, after my usual IV of coffee, my plan was to go to the park to run.

When I came out of Panera it was drizzling. Oh shit, I thought, no run for me today, fastening my hood. Then I hear…


“Excuse me?”

I look around to see who said that, but there was nobody but the guy manning the local coffee cart with his head in a box of donuts.

As I start to head home, I hear it again.

“Alright, I said out loud, “Hicks is that you?”

No I am not going around the bend…again…it’s just the name he’d call me because I hated getting wet.

He’d chide me repeatedly lecturing me by saying, “It’s just weather…ya can’t let it run your life baba.”

Oh no?

I’m just someone who feels better dry, and let me just say the wind in your hair is highly overrated.

However, I turn around towards the park thinking, what if the skies really open and I get soaked, then what.

“You can drip-dra when ya get home.”


So I run in a mild drizzle hiding under the trees, and the skies did open, but not until I was safely in my door with hardly a drop on me.

How bout that?

“You’re still a pussa.”

“Alright, alright.”

    Yeah you folks are getting blitzed real bad that’s for sure. What did you say to mother nature to make her so mad Susannah?


  2. Sometimes we need a little push to move us along. It’s funny how such things happen. Oh and my word for the day … Pussa!


  3. By the way did you see Miss Be a the Beagle won Westminster? Make sure you let Carmela know a hound is on top of the world!

    Maybe what I need is a little voice in my head to get me running again in this cold – and I DO live in the south! Sometimes that’s a little overrated too! LOL! Stay warm and dry. ~Elle


  6. Finally got to the gym this morning. I’m too much of a pussa to run in this cold! That’s why God made indoor gyms. Oh yes and he populated them with sweet old ladies who don’t like to move so I have something to write about!


  7. It’s raining there now? Winter rain is always the most miserable.
    Great story. It sounds like Bill had an umbrella ready for you. πŸ™‚
