It snowed here all day yesterday. Hubby was at work & asked me, via chat, how much snow we'd gotten. Since cubicles don't come with windows, he didn't even know how much snow he'd gotten where his office is.
Now not only am I the most amazing, awesome, loving wife & mother, but I'm also the Rain Man of snow? I can just look outside & know exactly how many snow flakes have fallen or how many inches are sitting in the driveway? Why has no one told me I had this ability until now? I could have impressed
Source "Really, Eddi? Counting flakes? No, baby, you don't have to do anything to impress me; you've already got my heart." Yeah, you wish Gerard would talk to you like that.
Obviously I'm not actually a Rain Man of Snow (wouldn't that just be a Snow Man?) 'cause I have no idea what I'm talking about. Please, no one email me to say how off my math is or something 'cause really...I didn't do any math to get those numbers. I can totally see my math genius hubby Googling (he loves Google, my little computer programmer man) how many flakes fall in Wisconsin over how many hours dividing that by how many square inches are in the total square feet of Wisconsin multiplying that by my little math I made up, subtracting a piece of pi, factoring in for meltage, and algebraing a totally different number than what I got.
So instead of saying all that
stupidity to hubby, the following occurred:
ICE: wow, how much do we have?
