Today Carlette and Nick and I had a Fabulously Fun Snow Day.
I Sat on the couch until around noon, and then I decided we needed to go sledding. I went over to their place where they were watching the MST3K "Santa Claus Conquers the Martians." We watched for a bit, but then I persuaded them to come join me for a sled adventure.
First we had to procure sleds. Carlette only had one, and it was one of those crappy roll-up versions. We went to the nearby Ace Hardware where they had exactly one plastic saucer sled, two plastic two-person sled, and one inflatable saucer sled. We bought one of each.
Then we made a detour home so they could Suit Up.
THEN THERE WAS SLEDDING. We went to Rosewood Arts Center in Kettering, where they have a Giant Hill of Death.
My plastic saucer sled enjoyed turning me backwards, so my every pass down the hill involved me going down backwards, looking over my shoulders and screaming "AAAA! TREE!!!" or "AAA!! GIANT SWAMP PUDDLE!!" and desperately trying to stop the sled before I died.
Carlette's inflatable saucer ripped on her second pass down a hill. It was way lame.
For our very last sled, Nick and I went down the hill in the two-person sled, caught a bit of air on the way down, and sailed through
the giant swamp puddle. It was simultaneously hilarious and terrifying.
We came home, where we made cookies and hot chocolate. And ate cookie dough.
And then we sat down on comfy couches and watched the MST3K Waffle Episode
because Nick had never seen it, and it's my very favorite episode. Then Nick decided we needed to watch Manos Hands of Fate
. Goddamn that is a bad movie.
After the movie we went out for sushi, which if you know me at all you know I loved. We drove by the Patterson Homestead
, which is apparently haunted and Carlette wants us to go ghost hunting there next month.
