My favorite part about winter….

Perhaps the only thing I like about winter….are the chunks of car-snow. You know, the snow that builds up on the wheel wells and under the door frame of the car. Call me crazy (go ahead, do it), but the 9-year-old girl in me loves car-snow. I like to kick it off. And the bigger the chunk, the better.

As I drive to work each morning, I check out other cars and the amount of car-snow that they’ve accumulated. I’m amazed that other people don’t kick this stuff off as soon as they walk to their cars. Often times, kicking the snow chunks off of my car is the only thing that gets me out of bed in the morning.

This morning I had to physically stop myself from getting out of the car at a red light and kicking off what I considered to be a real nugget of a snow-chunk on the Honda Civic next to me in traffic. But I managed to stop myself. People generally frown upon strangers getting out of their cars in traffic and kicking their wheel well. Plus, he was bigger than me. Next time….

    I wholeheartedly agree. There is something very satisfying about kicking those chunks off of a vehicle. I’ve even got my boyfriend doing it. We race up to the car and hip-check each other to try to get to it first. Good times. Oh, and I refer to them as "car boogers." Fitting, no?
