Mia Monday Snow Holiday
My kids have never made a snow ball. I used to stay outside in the cold playing until I had no feeling in my hands or feet. We made snow Angels, snow men (snow people was not thought of back then) we played tag. We had snot running out our nose and we did not care. Tackling anyone was okay, because there was snow to cushion your fall.
We also did some really stupid things. Bumper skiing was may have even been against the law. Is it dangerous? Yes, very dangerous. One could slide up under the car, and get run over by a car. So, in the HOOD we could not afford to go skiing. The next best thing was grabbing a bumper of a car, and hold on for dear life. Did I do something so stupid and dangerous? Well, I have children. I saw these things, and my sister never participated in such an activity.
As I remember how I used to spend the snowy weekends in the HOOD. I have now spent this weekend doing taxes. Hmmm, I would much rather spend it in the snow.
