Pointless Post Volume 3 – Walking to the Store in the Snow

Spread the love
Char in the snow
This snowball wasn't made from fallen snow, it fell from the sky onto Char like this. I was just lucky enough to catch the moment as it happened. A moment later, we were both whisked away to another time and place before returning from whence we came as if we had never left, only we had both been changed. I now have the ability to write bizarre captions to blog photos and Char has the ability to smack me across the head (in love) when she reads them.

On February 8, 2010, Char and I awoke to an unexpected blessing.  Two of our children were wandering outside our bedroom door wondering aloud if they had school or not.  Upon looking out the window, we saw a few inches of snow covering the neighborhood.

Later in the day, Char and I walked to Walgreens and to Starbucks for a cafe mocha before returning home.  Along the way, we had our usual dose of fun and romance, including – of course – interesting conversations and playtime with other passersby we met along the way.

One such conversation began innocently enough and quickly changed directions.  A man in the Walgreens parking lot had driven there with his dog.  “Beautiful dog you have,” Char commented.  Within 30 seconds, the 75 year old dog owner was discussing gay cowboys and assuring us his dog was not gay though at one time he thought it was.  Char has a way of bringing out the most interesting conversations from people.

Right now, as you are reading this post, I bet you’re thinking… boy, I sure never thought the phrase gay cowboy would come up in this article.

I will stop my blogging on this subject now… before a point is made.  For by making a point, I’d have to change the title of this post – which I really don’t want to do.  But before I leave you, let me offer you this video recapping some of our walk (MP4 file, 13 MB).

    I can hear the dinner conversation…”your mother and I went to Walgreens today and there was some crazy white chick in the parking lot trying to start a snowball fight with us! Then she had us hold the camera so she could get video of her hitting her husband with a snowball….I think maybe she was a little frozen…in the brain”

    ROFLOL…you are TOO crazy!!! And I think the video needs to get sent to Ugg…I sense a campaign coming on!!

    Laura – and just imagine if they went inside Walgreens and ran into the 75 year old who cornered them and started rambling about gay cowboys…
