The Other I

Looking for the joke

Filed under: Just Stuff — theotheri @ 2:38 pm

I walked out of my study this morning and Peter looked at my face.

“What’s wrong?”  he asked.  “Is your brother back in the hospital?”

“No,” I said.  “It’s nothing.”

“Then what’s wrong?”

Nothing.”

“Look, something is wrong, I can see your face.”

“The weather forecast for Cambridge is for snow on Wednesday.”

Snow?!  You’re joking.  Snow?”

“Yes.  Heavy snow for Wednesday.”

“It must be an April Fools joke.  They do that kind of thing here, you know.”

Unfortunately, the odds are against it.  Wednesday isn’t April Fools Day.

Don’t read this if you live above the Mason-Dixon line.  You won’t understand.  From what I’m hearing, there are residents in the north of the country who are still waiting for the snow to melt that arrived in December.
