The Misnomer of “Can’t Complain”

can't complain

How’s it going?  Oh, can’t complain, we reflexively answer.  Sure you can, but what we really mean is we won’t complain.  Snowbirds love to kvetch about overcast skies in Florida, or frigid temps that don’t get out of  the 60s during the day.  Waaah.  During the second inning of baseball games at Bright House, the tradition is that a local meteorologist reviews the local weather forecast, and contrasts it with conditions in Philadelphia and in the city of their opponents that day.  Today’s game is against the Yankees, so the weather will be the same as in NJ, which looked like this on the way out of our office last night, courtesy of my Resident:



It was supposed to turn into a freezing rain, slushy mess overnight, and I see that Fair Lawn schools are opening late this morning.  You don’t have to be WC Fields to agree that you’d rather be on Clearwater Beach today than in Philadelphia, or New York, or New Jersey.  Can’t complain … will be heading over to the stadium soon.
