That’s the Midwest lean, man. And it’s just a part of life. Survival tactics and what-have-you.

I don’t know how the rest of the world is today, but here in Chicagoland it’s ALL ABOUT the snow. Predictions of 22-23 inches of snow falling on us seems daunting to the average American Midwesterner, but I think it’s because they have their own houses, cars, jobs to get to. I have a job and a car, but my dad has a snowblower, so I don’t need to worry about any of that!!

My greatest concern lies in my plans for after work, which is:

Happy Tuesday.
