But Beanie, It's Cold Outside

As always - The Cast of Characters

Me (The Daddy)

The Bean: Age 8
The Butterfly: Age 6
The Darling Wife
The Buffett Puppy 

OK, so now it snows in Atlanta.  Pretty sure that wasn't in the brochure.

But in Atlanta, when the first flake of the first flurry drifts innocently through the sky, the entire city shuts down.

This means SNOW DAY for the younger set, The Bean and The Butterfly included.

The DW goes to work.  She is a Super Trouper.  Yes, I mean that in ABBA sort of way.

But The  Bean and The Butterfly are strangers to snow.  They throw on their thick winter coats.  And their Crocs.

Yes, their Crocs.  

They want to make Snow Angels in the very place that The Buffett Puppy makes his poo patties.

Poop Angels?

And now I will attempt to channel Dean Martin.  With apologies, of course, to Dean Martin.

Daddy, we want to play
(But Beanie, it's cold outside)
It's a beautiful day
(But Beanie, it's cold outside)

The snow is a-falling
(But Beanie, it's cold outside)
The snow is a-calling
(But Beanie, it's cold outside)

It all looks so nice
(But Beanie, it's as cold as ice)
The flakes fall like rice
(But Beanie, that doesn't make any sense)

Daddy, put on your sweats
(But Beanie, it's so cold and wet)
And look for my hat
(But Beanie, I don't want to do that)

Daddy, let's go!
(But Beanie, it's cold outside)
Let's play in the snow!
(But Beanie, it's cold outside)


So, we play in the snow.

And it's cold outside.
