It's only then that you really seem to realize that its winter, it's cold, everything is dead, and there's nothing to do for at least two months. It can be a depressing time, sure.

Time marches on; so does orthodontia

People are generally amazed when I tell them I take just one baby aspirin per day. The invariable comment is, "That is so wonderful for your age." Somehow that doesn't make me feel too wonderful - just old. But then I reply that I make up for it with my teeth.
