And now folks after 2 weeks of new activities and blogging, finally a word from Jaryl.
Today in Seattle…it snowed. So Madison and I decided to do something crazy, something we have always wanted to do, something, in the words of Barney from How I Met Your Mother…Legendary!!! But let’s go back to the morning first.
Madison and I awoke with no snow on the ground, we got into the car and drove to work. As we were driving through Inglewood a snow flake hit our car. “Was that snow?” we asked each other simultaneously. It sure was. We always reference Inglewood as being Narnia because when ever its cold, it snows there and nowhere else. But today, It snowed everywhere. Now we flash forward to tonight. Where Madison and I did the unthinkable…
“What are we going to do today for our new thing?” Madison asked me as I was engrossed in a puzzle of three dogs and some converse tennis shoes. “I dunno” I answered. Then she asked me the only thing that would take me away from the puzzle. “Do you want to bury me in the snow?” My eyes widened, my smile looked like the smile of the Grinch, and my hands reached for the puzzle piece I had looking for. ”SUCCESS!!! I FOUND IT…Wait, what did you say? ” Do you want to bury me in the snow?” She repeated. Then, My eyes widened even wider, my smile grew 3 sizes (much like the Grinch’s heart), and I threw my hands in the air. This was better than finishing a puzzle.
This was a dream come true. Bury Madison in the snow. I was handed a snow shovel, Madison grabbed some trash bags and put them on her legs as if she were wearing M.C. Hammer pants, and we trekked out into the snow. I scooped some snow and Madison laid on the ground. “Quick hurry! It’s really cold.” she said as she shivered. I picked up some snow with the shovel and dumped it on Madison’s stomach. I then picked up some more and tossed it on her legs. You couldn’t stop me. It was one scoop after the other. Scoop…place…scoop…place…scoop…place. I had found my inner mobster, my k9 instincts, my pirate persona. I was unstoppable. I watched Madison as she laughed at me and laughed at being buried. Finally…we were finished. She lay on the ground…motionless. Okay, not motionless, she was laughing really hard. I mean, who wouldn’t. She did something she had never done before…be buried. And today, I did something I had never done before….Bury someone. She stood up and the snow fell from her clothes. She shook herself off and we went back inside.
Madison gives this legendary adventure a freezing 10/10
I give this legendary aventure a 100/10. That’s right I said 100.
This was amazing, Incredible, absolutely the greatest aventure ever! And for the price of a shovel, you could have the adventure of a lifetime as well. If you haven’t buried someone or been buried in the snow, do it! Right now! Don’t wait! But make sure that they want to be buried.
