AS I RECALL

As I recall it was December When a blizzard closed down O’Hare I was sick of northern winters While the sun was shining south somewhere I remembered in a magazine Pictures of a tropic scene In the sunny Caribbean So, I called my friendly travel agent Send me somewhere it's hot When I asked her for suggestions She said "Antigua, maybe Montserrat I replied, "I just don't know" "just as long as there isn't snow" She just laughed, "when can you go?" Quit my job and sold my car on Friday Bought a video on water sports Gave up suits and sweaters all to goodwill Shopped for sandals, found some neon shorts All my friends said "Dave, you're nuts" Trader Vicks sells coconuts Seems to us you're in a rut At the airport, all the seats were taken Travelers were sitting on the floor When I heard a voice behind me "Sir, there's always room for more I think I saw you in the parking lot Ten degrees and she still looked hot Cupid aimed and took his shot What can you say to an unknown lady And be politically correct If you can't improve on silence You risk showing disrespect "excuse me please but I’d like to know How a flower blooms in snow" She just smiled and said "hello"

Making up your mind is like making a bed: it usually helps to have somone on the other side. The best decisions in life are the ones you make yourself.
