“I know.” –Brad Solo
I think, the best thing about a blizzard, like the one that struck yesterday, just one day after the snowstorm we had the day before, is that if your lucky enough to get stuck at home, you get to stay in, relax and play until its over. So what do you do when you open your door and it’s completely blocked with snow? Let your imagination go wild. My first reaction was to make a naked snow angel. After all, how often can you stand naked in your doorway and not have to worry about your neighbours calling the police, or charging admission? Well, the moment my bare skin touched the snow I realized I am not as wild and crazy as I originally thought. Cupid may fly around in his altogether but angel Brad is having pants! So with my clothes back on I leaned back into the snow in my doorway and came to the realization there was no room to spread my wings and fly. Oh the dreams that crash and burn because doorways are too narrow. So I couldn’t make snow angels, what next? Then the geekiness that I usually manage to keep hidden from the world emerged. After all I was home alone, with a door full of snow and an over active imagination.
Darth Vader: Put him in the Carbonite
Princess Leia: I love you
Brad Solo: I know
Boba Fett: I’ll take the merchandise to Jabba.
Maybe it’s just Blizzard Fever but I had fun re-enacting The Empire Strikes Back.
