WHY I LIKE THE SNOW

by Stuart G. Moore
39th Grade

Growing up, I always hated dealing with snow. But in New York City, it's great. Here's why:

• If you commute in to an office job -- from upstate, New Jersey, or Connecticut -- you have an excuse to stay home, goof off, and/or spend time with your kids.

• If you're younger and work for the people described above, you probably live in Brooklyn or Queens and can make it to work via subway. Then you get to feel superior to your boss, who's too weak to brave the weather; and you get to (a) screw around a little and (b) actually get work done for once. All you have to do is make sure you're sober enough to not slur your words when your boss calls in to "see if there's anything I need to do."

• And if you're a freelancer, like me, you get to just sit on your ass and watch it fall.

And if you try to build a snowman or a fort, you have an excuse when they're really small and dorky.
