Jimmy Buffett's smash hit party song "Boat Drinks" contains this verse:
Lately, newspaper mentioned cheap air fare
I gotta to fly to Saint Somewhere
I'm close to bodily harm
Twenty degrees and the hockey games on
Nobody cares they are way too far gone
Screaming boat drinks, something to keep em all warm
Right now its 35 degrees and raining in Sarasota. It snowed between Tampa and Mickey the Rat World in Orlando this morning. Today is the first day since February 25, 2008, that I have worn socks (still refusing to put on long pants, however).
I'm also checking airfare to Nicaragua. Its always hot on the Pacific coast of that little Central American gem. And as Jimmy says, "I gotta go where its warm."
