I spent the morning shoveling our driveway and sidewalk. Seeger helped for awhile before getting distracted with his sled. As I was shoveling, I saw Edward and Aubrey who live a few houses down the street from us. I've tried to befriend this couple. They're young and cute (something our neighborhood lacks) but they definitely keep to themselves. So I'm shoveling away and Aubrey is in the middle of the street, in her cute boots and cute skirt and cute coat and cute scarf, looking toward the entrance to our neighborhood. I'm not sure what she's doing but finally, she and Edward get in their car and drive down the street and past Seeger and I. I wave the neighborly wave and they ignore me. Once they get to the end of our street (to the entrance of our neighborhood) I see them get out of their car. Aubrey makes her way from the passenger side to the driver side and Edward starts walking back to his house.
It all starts to make sense. As Edward walks by (in his long johns and boxer shorts) I ask what's going on. He grunts something about Aubrey being nervous about driving in the snow. Cute little Aubrey needed her Edward to test it for her. Don't get me wrong. I'm all about being girly - to an extent - but it seemed too much to me as I continued my shoveling.
