“Ansel Adams meets lemon meringue pie” is actually quite a fair analogy for a new snowfall I think.
And I love how kids get like this when they see something, it is so exciting and all-important and immediate, and as an adult you’re just thinking, “I have seen this a million times, I wonder if I can pull out the energy to fake excitement for this child from some untuouched-by-cynicism core of my being.”
I haven’t watched much television for about 20 years, mostly because I enjoy life more when I don’t. But I’m surrounded by people who do. Which makes it ripe for writing about. :)
Oh, and of course this ran right after Thanksgiving, the big gift shopping days. ;-)
(oh, and I adore Hugh Laurie).
