2 years ago I bought the girls matching winter outerwear sets and predicted in this space we’d have the warmest Indiana winter on record. I’d spent big bucks on outerwear, so it was sure to be for nought. Guess what? My winter shopping string theory proved to be true, and it didn’t snow at all. In fact, the daffodils were up in March, and we were in bathing suits in April.
Luckily, I bought the bibs and coats a bit large, and the girls were able to wear them again last year, when the snow fell, and fell, and fell some more. Or was it ice? It sucked…I remember it was cold and sucky. Indiana winters are icy and sucky? NO WAY.
So I’m giving you the heads up: I’ve done it again. This butterfly beat her wings in the Midwest, which will cause a change in weather patterns, thereby creating another warm winter. These fantastically expensive coats and bibs will NOT be needed. I should rephrase “fantastically expensive”, because 2 years ago, the lady at Lands End talked me into joining Sear’s Points Club, and I’ve earned so many points in the last 24 months that I saved 41 cents on this purchase!! An hour of looking for my old laminated card, and another 30 minutes of trying to remember my password…and check it out! 41 extra coins in my pocket! Chedda’ comin’!
In summary: Warm winter ahead. Frequent Flyer Savings Clubs are stupid. String theory is real, man. You’ve learned 3 critically important lessons today; now you can go home and go back to bed. You’re welcome.
