New Hampshire in the Morning

Timing is not my strong suit
Timing is not my strong suit

M – We all know the feeling of frustration of getting in the “wrong” checkout line at the store. One line has eight people while the next one has just two customers. Naturally, that’s the line you get into. Suddenly the line with eight melts to one person while the guy in front of you is buying a pack of cigarettes with change he dug out of his couch. Your timing sucks again.

I feel your pain, brotha! My timing is just as bad. I bought a big honkin’ Ariens snow blower right after our 17-inch Halloween snow storm. Hasn’t snowed since. Just as bad: I put in a brick and stone firepit in my back yard in October. It snowed once (Halloween), then stayed cold at night so I haven’t used THAT either! Maybe if I buy a $1300 treadmill, January temperatures will be 65 everyday and I will walk outside instead of using the exercise toys.

That’s OK, you can thank me for buying the snow blower…my bad timing has been everyone else’s good fortune so far this winter. Should I order that treadmill?
