    "For the ages" as a sports trope. Replacing the deadly "iconic" as most overused. Absolutely.
    It's a great day to be a Muskie!

    That's a lot easier to say when you're not on the receiving end of such an incident. While something happened to me as a young kid that was self-inflicted, it does create a mental block that's harder to overcome as a kid.
    This was my aunt and I was still a child when she started telling me the story in detail. That's more a way to make others as freaked out as you. I prefer my mother's practice of NOT freaking your kids out about the irrational things that bothered you. And my aunt has a tendency to always dwell on the negative. She likes to see herself as someone that has overcome so many obstacles and is always prepared to recount them for you. There isn't a story you can tell that she cannot relate back to herself, even if the question is as simple as "do you want to swim with us?" It would be different if it were one thing in an otherwise full and varied conversational relationship.

    People who ask "Sick of the weather up there yet, bet you miss Cincinnati!".

    No. No I knew what I was getting into by moving into Central New York. Yes, a 3 foot snowfall before Thanksgiving is unusual, but in reality, I love snowstorms and the cold. I'm having a blast, even if you don't think it looks fun, for me, it actually is a great time.

    And by the way, after that huge amount of snowfall, the roads here are clear, less than 12 hours later. Cincinnati would lose their collective minds with this amount of snow.

    A little bit of a learning curve (plow guys SUCK) but it's beautiful country and I can go outside wearing a fur hat and nobody thinks it's odd. My kind of place.

    Realizing half way through dinner you've broken a molar and will need an appointment for a crown first thing in the morning.
