A Cold Weather Manifesto

In honor of the end of this full week of walking to (and from) work in sub-freezing temperatures—-and right before I go heading out into said sub-freezing temperatures to hunt and gather lunch—-I offer this, my Cold Weather Manifesto:

If you are in a car with a functioning heater, you do NOT have the right to cut me off in the corsswalk to make a hurry-up turn on the green light. You’re in an enclosed, climate controlled environment, and I’m out in the cold with the wind swirling and blowing in my eyes. You get to wait.

That is all.

    they also need to be aware that those of us on foot are often bundled to the point of limited peripheral vision. hats, scarves and so forth. we might not be able to see the cars.

    To which point we can run you over and kill you. Just joking I wouldn’t run over pedestrians, unless they were old….joking again we don’t euthanize the old just the stupid, I’m sorry I’ll stop now. I’m in an expecially evil mood today.
