It was a beautiful spring day, after a long, snowstorm-filled winter. It was also my co-worker’s birthday.
As my co-worker (whom I shall call Penelope for this post) entered the office building that morning, the security guard sang out, “Hey, Penelope! 60 today?”
In a huff, Penelope responded, “Hell, no – 50!”
The security guard had no way of knowing it was Peneloope’s birthday. Properly chastised, he apologized: “Oh, I guess they must have changed the weather forecast.”
Everyone in the office had a good laugh when the story was told around the coffee machine.
Today, in Western New York (after a long, snowstorm-filled winter), it’s supposed to reach 67 degrees. Today is also my birthday. Can you guess what birthday it is based on the prior story?
You probably guessed wrong. Mother Nature seems to have learned her lesson since that day. Today the outside temperature and the birthday match.
May your day be warm and beautiful today, too. Dare I say that spring is finally here?
