In other news, we had some snow and ice here this morning. On what fun.

If I had to choose, I’d say that the latter of the two is the more annoying one because when I get it there it always feels like my back would cave in on itself if someone were to put too much pressure on the sore area. I know this won’t happen, but anyway…
