Charlie-

Man, there’s something really satisfying about smoking a cigarette outside on a snowy day. Maybe it’s because the first time I went to buy a pack of smokes was during a huge snowstorm in middle school. We had off and three of us braved the blizzard and walked to the Quarry Inn which had a cigarette machine. (Are they illegal now?) Maybe it’s that memory saying, “Ben, this is when it all went awesomely wrong.?

You know what sucks about snowstorms? All you suburban or smallish city folk who somehow manage to still get snow days. Apparently your worlds are too fragile, easily thwarted by simple and relatively weak weather patterns. I don’t know what it’s like in Philly, but up here it’s just a gross coating of mushy snow and a steady wintry mix. Humans are advanced enough to handle such things… I thought. Whatever. Enjoy your day, “working from home.? It is your birthday today: the day of love. So fine, stay home. Play Wii. Smoke inside. Watch the scene over and over again, getting more and more pumped. Yeah, you know it’s coming, I know it’s coming, and soon the eastern seaboard will know… it’s coming!

Happy Birthday. Happy V-day. TC.
-Ben
