I had a wonderful time away. Among other things, I discovered you’re never too old to build a snowman. Although, if memory serves (and granted, it doesn’t always serve well) my snowmen used to be much bigger.
Is the “mini” in my Mini-Me snowman due to my having grown taller or lazier?
And while building snowmen is fun, snowball fights are not. Too many childhood memories of ice chunks hidden in snowballs. (Nasty Canadian boys.) However, a mitten or glove of snow in the face or down the back of the neck is acceptable. Not particularly pleasant, but acceptable. And revenge is sweet.
