Remember The Snowman
I recall this one time watching the driver of this huge plow going down Main Street jumping the curb and taking out a snowman someone painstakingly built. I really enjoyed watching it and I really believe the driver had fun doing it. The problem is I was the one who created that huge, larger-than-life snowman and within seconds it was gone.
One troublesome factor as a young teen is we tend to act before we think. I believe it’s universal and having teenage children now, I see it every day. I call it the teen-affect.
Case in point is what I did out of my frustration for the plow taking out my “original” snowman. I decided to make a new larger-than-life snowman but this time hidden in the body will be a fire hydrant. This snow plow truck will be in for a rude awakening if he tries to take out this “new” snowman.
It didn’t occur to me, at the time, how dangerous making a snowman over a fire hydrant. That teen-affect was fully engaged and I didn’t, for a second, consider the danger with which I potentially was putting any unsuspecting snow plow with a vengeance to hit snowmen.
Thankfully that snowman stayed there and back corner on top of that fire hydrant for a few days until some kids knocked it down.
I thought I couldn’t blame the plow truck for taking out the snowman. Quite frankly, I did the same exact thing later when I had my own plow. It was fun!

We’ve talked about taking medication the last few blog posts. Whether you are for medication or for something stronger and all natural like COFFEE, I feel it’s a personal choice.
