Winter amnesia

Is it just me, or does everybody else get winter amnesia, too? You know, that feeling of “ohmigod it’s so cold! Has it ever really been this cold in Chicago before?” It’s as if we completely forget what it was like just 9 or 10 months ago.

I was having a conversation with someone this morning and I said “MAN it’s cold this year. Schools are closing and everything!”, to which she replied “Uh, Nellie, the schools closed last year, too. It’s this cold every year.”, to which I said *blink* *blink*.

For me, it’s a matter of blocking the memory. I hate the stupid winter. I’m traumatized by it every year. As soon as March rolls around I put winter as far out of my memory as possible. But as it turns out, it really is this cold in Chicago every year. Thank god for Chicagos amazing history, people, music, culture, art, and most importantly, comedy. Otherwise I’d be soooo over this whole “chicago” thing.
