I’m almost 100% convinced that my parents still think I’m 16 and just learning to drive.
As I’m sure you all have seen, the mid state is due snow this week. Quick! Get to Kroger to buy your milk and bread! Can we pause on that thought for a second? Who in their right mind wants to survive on milk and bread? Ewh. If I’m stocking up on anything it’s going to be frozen pizzas, doughnuts, and margarita mix. Anyway…. yes, we might get some snow. By the way everyone freaks out, you would think we were due three feet of snow. Nope, just an inch. But that one little inch has my mom and dad freaking out about my work commute to Nashville.
Because they’re just so sweet and care way too much about me, they have made me pack a snow bag to leave in my car. Just the thought makes me roll my eyes. The contents of my snow bag include: a blanket, socks, gloves, a hat, water, dry snacks, a toothbrush, a pair of underwear, and a change of clothes. I’m seriously laughing out loud at how funny this is. I hope I never get stuck on the road in an inch of snow, but let me tell you, if I do, I’m prepared.
My poor dad even wanted me to tell my supervisor that I might not make it in the morning because of the weather. I had to remind him I was a 23 year old adult who could make that decision on my own. I think my parents are forgetting they paid to put me through, not one, but TWO, driver’s ed courses. One of those classes was specifically geared towards driving in inclement weather. It was actually pretty fun though. We got to slide across parking lots in slick BMWs. And the instructors were pretty hot. But that’s beside the point. I can handle rain, snow, and whatever else Mother Nature throws my way.
And LOL that as I’m writing this my mom just called me and suggested I stay in Nashville tonight because the weather is bad. It’s still sunny outside. So no, I will not be staying in Nashville, and yes, I will be driving home.
So if you get stuck on I40 tomorrow, come find me. I’ll be tailgating in my car with all my water and snacks. Stay safe out there, folks.
