May day snow, a reason for relaxation


snow

As Ferris Bueller said in his movie, “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.”

Don’t get me wrong. This movie is one of my all-time favorites. How could something so profound come from such a goofy movie?

I took half the day yesterday to make pizza for dinner for family–including the extended–in preparation of watching Sophie’s spring performance in Stewartsville, MO yesterday.

I know I complained about snow at the end of April a couple of weeks ago, but how was I to know it would smack us again in May?

This time I didn’t get angry about it, I just enjoyed the show for what it was, which was basically a freak of nature. I’m not saying there isn’t snow routinely on the ground somewhere in May, but this has to be a record for this part of the country. Fortunately for us, the snow was mostly a mixture and never really stuck to the ground.

There were things that I would rather have been doing, but I chose to ignore that and focus on the positive, which was while I was making our pizza, from scratch, I got to watch Ferris Bueller’s Day Off for the first time in quite a while.

At least for a day I didn’t just watch as life went barreling by me, I embraced the conditions and actually enjoyed them and it was really pleasant.

Have a great day everybody.

About Todd Fuller

After a really long search, I found work that I feel is more relevant to my degree--technical writing. While it's not what I initially envisioned doing, it's actually been very enjoyable and rewarding work. I guess I feel like there is still more out there to do, so I've decided I will try the whole blogging thing again and resurrect this site. If anyone's still out there, enjoy and feel free to comment.

  1. I too had not seen Ferris Bueller for a long time until the other day. Now I set here wondering if you and I, in some kind of cosmic beauty, were watching Ferris at the same time. Is Ferris the power that binds you and I together. If so I say danke schoen universe, danke schoen. I wonder who would be Ferris and who would be Cameron (or if you would like you can be Sloane). Either way I would like to reenact the pool scene. Oh can George be Mr. Rooney. I think he would be an awesome Rooney.

  2. Yea it would be awesome. But I don’t think you’re really that excited about it so don’t expect it to happen next time I see you.

    Movie Quote Challenge. Can not use internet to get quotes or answers. On the honor system. Do not have to use whole quote but must be enough that someone would recognize it. I’ll go first.
