Boxing Day


It’s cool out there this morning.  It’s a rather tropical and balmy -22C (-8*F) and I’m really feeling the love this morning.  Of course my brain had to play dumb once again.

“Brrr!  It looks cold out there.”

“Well no foolin’ brain.  What did you think it was when you read the temp?”

“Well I was hoping that it was a mistake.”

“Nope.  It was no mistake.”

“Are you sure?”


“Are you absolutely sure?”


“How can you be so sure?”

“Cuz I checked more than one source.”

“But what if they’re wrong?”

“They’re not wrong.”

“Stick your head outside just to be sure.”

“I’m not gonna stick my head out there.  It’s cold.”

“Well, do it just to make sure.”


“Oh c’mon.  Just this once.”

“No brain.  Now shut up.  It’s coffee time.”

“Just once.”


“Oh c’mon ya big sissy.”

“Oh Jesus H Christ.  If I do it, will you shut up and leave me alone?”

“Uh huh.”

“Yeh right.”

So I stuck my head outside.


“Well no foolin’ brain.  Why do I even listen to you?”

“Cuz you’re not that smart at times.”
