Then why do we live here? We don't live here. We were born here .... and we can't escape. Why? because Canada is awesome. And Canadians are awesome. We need to blame the first stupid awesome people that decided to have stupid awesome babies here. They bred a whole country of awesome - patriotic - COLD people. Stupid settlers.
All Canadian Moms teach their children the basics:
- The snow pants go UNDER the coat. Even though my son tries to jam them over - every. freakin.year
- Your mitts need to be secured over your coat sleeves - nothing ends a party like getting snow on your wrists
- Don't throw snowballs at your mom. I gave you life .... don't make me take it away ...
- And DO NOT. UNDER ANY circumstances - lick anything metal.
I got my first car when I was 18. And for 14 years I dealt with winter like this: From Warm Building to Warm Car. From Warm Car to Warm Building. Repeat.
I would spend a grand total of 7 minutes outside in an entire day and STILL complain how cold it was. How I managed to not have my arse kicked with a frozen boot, by people that actually WORK outside for hours at a time, I will never know.
Then, I had children. They love EVERYTHING about snow - they love to skate, and ski and build snowmen and all. kinds. of. ridiculous. crap.
Another #!##$ing thing I was NOT warned about.
