hitchen post

"It was an especially frigid weekend on Mount Winchester, with temperatures dropping into the teens and the snowfall reaching approximately three feet. The solarium, as it often does during the harshness of February, cracked under the weight of snow, endangering Roger's seven prize orchids and nearly freezing our beloved cat, Mr. Hitchens. Of course, we didn't leave the house, but thanks to the Orange Alert, we had ample bottled water and tinned sea bass. I would have spent the weekend drinking wine, but I've vowed not to consume any French products until those Vichy cowards bow down to the noble dogs of war. A collective ass saved twice, apparently, does not evince gratitude from a nation of weaklings."
