Slushed

It is official the holiday break is over, I am back at work, back to my regular scheduled programming. I know that not everyone else fell off the face of the planet like I did (hence the large amount of catch up blog reading I have to do) but I am back and really loving having my normal schedule back so that my days can include blogging!

For my first real post I want to share a little story. Today I called my doctor on my lunch break because I had a few questions for her. She wasn't available and they said that she would call me back later. Well of course she called while I was at work. My questions were important enough that I wanted to step out of the office in order to call her back and get things resolved.

I walked to the back of the office to the back door and opened it to find a foot of snow built up right next to the door. I stood there contemplating if I could step out and just stay in one spot and not get totally drenched. Just as I was about to step out I noticed a van approaching so I decided to wait until it passed before I went out.

I am standing there minding my own business and then all the sudden I had one of those moments where everything turns into slow motion.

I am standing there thinking...
"Man it is really slushy outside."
"That van is going pretty fast for how slushy it is outside."
"I am standing pretty close to all that slushy stuff."
Then BAM I had been slushed.

I couldn't believe it. I had seen it in movies. I had seen it happen to other people but I had never experienced getting nasty brown wet slush splattered all over me. Needless to say I changed my mind real quickly about going outside. I stepped back in and wiped the huge slush spots off my pants and coat the best I could and walked back to my desk.

The End.


This is me, except picture it being snow and not going over my head.

I know we've talked about this, but I think I have Seasonal Affective Disorder simply because of the snow. I know it's supposed to be because of the lack of sunlight, but this snow sure does make me depressed.
