I go for the psychological approach. "The fact that you felt you needed to steal from me shows that you don't respect me enough to ask me for something you know I'll say yes to, which makes me feel..." And so on, for an hour.

Well, that was the first day. It took more than one lecture, of course. It ended with one of them holding my mouth shut and shoving cash into my pocket to get me to shut up.

Oh...and over an hour of it would probably leave your throat dry. Hydration is important.

A fact that my drumline coach won't let me forget! I think he's said "water" more times this season than "snares," "drums," "mallets," "sticks" and "drill" combined.

Which is impressive to say the least. I'd think you'd say those pretty often in drum class.

Yup. "Shoe polish" used to come up a lot, as did "armageddon" when we were discussing potential snowstorm plans. Someone made a dictionary last year of all the things he says that only we get.

Funny you should mention snowstorm plans and armageddon in teh same sentence. Seattle was just hit by what people are calling "Snowmageddon 2012". Which, if it were in Cape Cod, wouldn't even slow you guys down I assume.

Most of our snowstorms are actually pretty mild, the worst we've gotten in the past seven years or so was three or four feet. We have the ocean to kind of knock it out.

Seattle got less than a foot and it brought us to a standstill. 4 feet would stop us deader than dead.

We were pretty dead, too. But Cape Cod's not a city, it's suburban, so there's a little more room for snow plows.

Yeah. And at least you have them. Seattle has 4, I think.

Oh wow. Most of our landscaping companies own plows that attach to their normal trucks, so when there's a storm the town hires them out to plow. I love snowstorms. They're the best.

It always comes at the right time :D And power outages are fun. Except no internet, that's not fun. But then you get to find new ways to entertain yourself, which is cool. I usually end up sleeping over at my neighbor's house so that I don't have to sleep in a basement alone and my neighbor doesn't have to sleep in a basement alone.
