You might be asking (or not) why is “Snow Day” capitalized.
Good question (or not).
Because the Snow Day is a sacred event that must always be treated with the highest respect.
One does not want to anger the Snow Day Gods. If you do there may not be another.
And none of us want that.
This is why it is important to never ever anticipate the Snow Day. Even if our friend Jim Cantore at the Weather Channel is calling for 97 feet of snow overnight (and high winds which as you know can cause blowing and drifting), always act like you will have school the next day.
Go to bed at the regular time, iron your clothes, and pack your lunch.
To repeat: I can’t stress this strongly enough… never ever take the Snow Day for granted.
The Snow Day knows where you live and doesn’t take disrespect kindly.
The Snow Day ranks right up there with the Big 2. Summer and Christmas Vacations.
You could make the argument that the Snow Day is the grandest of all these school events because it is unexpected, but that is a whole different blog.
So now that the Snow Day has arrived, school has been cancelled, and I’ve been up since the wee hours, I am left with the Snow Day Dilemma.
Really it’s a riddle.
A riddle wrapped in a conundrum.
Surrounded by a giant vat of enigma.
Or something like that.
Here’s my dilemma. Should I stay up the rest of the morning and take a Snow Day Nap this afternoon or should I go back to bed for the Snow Day Sleep In?
They said being a superintendent would be challenging, but I had no idea I would face these types of difficult situations.
It’s almost like I can’t win.
Stay up and I feel groggy.
Go back to bed and I’m a lazy piece of crap.
It’s not easy being me.
Maybe I should ask Buddy the Dog.
He just woke up from his 12 hour overnight snooze fest. He does his best thinking when he’s well rested.
And as you know, I go to Buddy for help with all of my big educational questions.
Whoops, too late.
He’s already asleep in what is sure to be his first of 6 naps today (he was up for less than 7 minutes… I wish I was kidding).
While you can (and should) make the argument that he’s not overly ambitious, you have to admit… he knows how to make a decision.
