Things We’d Rather Have Six More Weeks Of
Happy Groundhog Day, guys! Today Punxsutawney Phil came out of hibernation to see if he could find his shadow, only to scurry back inside his hole. Meanwhile us human folk are left to discuss his weather prediction. The tradition states that if the li’l dude sees his shadow, which he did this year, we get a whole six more weeks of winter. Joy! Though this winter has been unseasonably warm where I live in Chicago (and by that, I mean it’s been in the 40s), it still gets pretty chilly. Honestly, I could do without the season of winter all together (minus snow at Christmastime).
There are definitely a lot of things that I would be willing to do in the place of six more weeks of winter. I would give up my Diet Coke addiction. I would wear a bra 24/7 instead of taking it off the minute I walk into my home. I would even start flossing the amount of times that my dentist recommends. Here are five more things that I would take in place of the cold, blistering winds and snowstorms that a Chicago winter typically offers. What would you do if winter would disappear and spring sprang early?
