Hemingway, I have a wonderful idea! It will be great fun for a Saturday night when it’s still too cold to go outside.
You do realize that you woke me up from my nap, don’t you? What is this big idea you had.
Well, you know how all the silly humans were talking about the “snirt” that fell on us this past week? At first I had no idea what they were talking about but Mom finally explained that “snirt” is snow-dirt. Seems we got some dirt and sand all the way from Texas and New Mexico mixed in with our snow.
I heard about that when those weather people were talking. I don’t know where Texas is but Mom says it’s a long ways away and we can’t go there. I don’t know if I’m real happy about them sending their dirt to us, though. Maybe we should send them our snow!
I know Mom would agree with that. However, my idea for tonight is to come up with some other snow addition possibilities. I’ll go first.
Snatnip = snow and catnip (I’m all in favor of that)
Ok, I get it. Here’s another one.
Snocolate = snow and chocolate (Mom would love that)
Snake = snow and cake. (I don’t think I like that one.)
Snickles = snow and pickles (that just sounds funny)
Snizza = snow and pizza (that sounds like someone’s sneezing)
Snowdered sugar = snow and powdered sugar
Snuppies = snow and puppies
Snittens = snow and kittens
You’re right, Steinbeck. This was a fun thing to do on a cold Saturday night. Thanks for coming up with the idea. Now let’s go to sleep.
