Varying Perspectives

Yesterday afternoon, I was out running errands and made a quick stop at Sam's Club. A new mom was standing ahead of me in line holding a little bundle all wrapped up in thick pink blankets. The Sam's employee noticed the baby as well.

"Is that a baby girl you got there?" she asked. "How old is she?"

"Six weeks," the mom replied, beaming.

The employee appeared shocked.

"Then girl, what are you doing here in this cold air?!"

A valid question for February.
If it weren't still
70 degrees and sunny here in Southern California.

After leaving Sam's, I made sure to take a quick snapshot of the clear blue sky to illustrate my point. Yes, the day was that beautiful! (Ignore the phone line... you get the picture.)

It took every ounce of self-control I could muster for the Utahn in me to not burst out in laughter. Different perspectives, indeed.


  1. That is hilarious! And to think I used to think that way too!

  2. That's so great! Can I just tell you how much I love your blog! Always fascinates and entertains me!

  3. That is too funny. If it were only 70 in Cedar right now. What I wish for is some of your palm trees and sunshine.....maybe someday.

  4. HA! That is awesome. I've had similar experiences when people here freak out if it snows an inch and talk about the crazy snowstorm we just had. I'm thinking, "You guys don't even KNOW what snow is!" And I cannot believe that's the view from the Sam's Club parking lot. Southern Cali sounds reeeeally inviting right now, in the dead of winter!

  5. haha. We just had a "snow emergency" ... whatever hat means =). Please soak up some of that sun for me!
