“HAPPY” Blogiversary Celebration with Carolyn Crane
Kicking snow clumps off the bottom of our car makes me happy.
by Carolyn Crane
It sounds stupid, I know, but it really does make me happy to kick those suckers off! Especially this time of year. Whack!
For those of you who don’t know what they are, I have provided a helpful diagram! The car underside, especially around the wheels, just gets full of them. Sometimes they hang on there for months.
It’s not easy to get them off, either—they are like barnacles, all iced on there and clinging. You really have to go at them sometimes, but it is incredibly satisfying when one finally falls. All gray and icy and evil. It feels like freeing the car. Sometimes I smash and stomp them. Not to sound psycho. But I do!!
The other day I was looking out our window and I saw a woman kicking snow clumps off of a car parked on the street, and I assumed it was her car, but then she went to the next car and started kicking them off of that one. I have never kicked the snow clumps off of other people’s cars. I was super impressed! Though, it’s kind of ballsy, like trimming a shrub that’s not your own. So, I haven’t yet done that, but don’t think I’m not tempted!
