It’s NOT spring. Believe me. It may have been a mild winter so far but I have been lured into thinking that winter was over early before. I was then extremely disappointed when the snow began to fall in February.Â
Remember, winter starts December 21stÂ so we haven’t even been at it a month yet.Â Officially, spring doesn’t hit the calander until March 21st or so.
However, the preferred method of determining spring, according to a patient of mine who teaches the fifth grade, is to wait and see when love blossoms. Just as the flowers and trees begin to bud, so do romances at that time of year.
The girls begin to dress up and pursue the boys once again, apparently coming out of their winter hibernation. But according to her, and unfortunately for girlsÂ inÂ the fifth grade, theÂ boys still don’t have a clue and are still making fart sounds with their armpits.
It may be a long winter yet.
