It was really cold today – bitterly cold. Sometimes mentioning the wind chill factor is nothing more than hype. Today, you could feel every biting degree.
Sure, I hate the cold, but there’s an upside. It finally feels like we’re in the Christmas season, which is good.
Though we don’t observe Christmas, we enjoy participating in everyone else’s fun. Everyone seems to be in a good mood.
A few nights ago, Ann Nyberg, one of our news anchors, mentioned she’d seen a car with a big red nose and antlers! We all got a kick out of it.
Later, on the 11:00 PM news, Chris Kirby – our art director, fashioned an ‘artist’s rendering’ of what the car might have looked like… especially as the featured vehicle on MTV’s “Pimp My Sleigh Ride.”
Flash forward to today. Ann returned to her desk to find an antler/nose kit sitting there. She looked puzzled.
I told her, if she didn’t want it, I surely did. And so, my car now has antlers. They’re fitted with little plastic brackets that fit over the top edge of a car’s windows. It’s hysterical.
I will install the nose when it’s warmer… like in the garage at home.
