First Kisses and Snow

I follow a South African Triathlete on Twitter. Actually, he's not just a triathlete, he's won the XTerra world championship 3 times, and could well do it again next year.

He spends a lot of his time in Reno and apparently he's there right now.

ConradStoltz It's snowing cats and dogs in Reno. Snow is so
amazing- everyone has to see it before they die

I miss feeling that way about snow. This morning, as I brushed it off my car at 4:45 am in temperatures hovering around 10 degrees (That's like -12 Celcius), I may have muttered a few words of contempt about it under my breath, and as I drove into work on a rather slick freeway, I may have uttered a few more.

It's kind of like that first kiss. I love being married and all, but there is a completely indescribably feeling when anticipating or participating in a first kiss. Perhaps that's why the twilight books were so big... People trying to capture that feeling through a character in a novel.

  1. Have you seen the movie 50 First Dates? I think you'd like it, it's really cute. And you know, I live in LA and I'm totally over snow.
