My Abusive Mother, Nature
I turned in the story on Monday, after yet another weekend snowstorm. “Oooh, how timely!” I thought.
And the story came out in print this morning, after a night of high temperatures and driving rain has made pretty much all of the snow disappear. Figures. The two days I absolutely HAD to go into the office for an important phone interview, we had mega snowstorms both times. But the one day I'd like there to be snow so my story makes sense? Behold the grandeur of early spring.
Environmentalists wouldn't be so keen on saving Mother Nature if they knew she was a graduate of the Joan Crawford school of child-rearing.
