See... last week, I had to have some biopsies taken of some stuff on my face. It turns out I have something called Zinc Responsive Dermatosis, or ZRD. They took four samples and had to stitch me up, so I had to wear ... the dreaded cone. Oh, not if I was out on a really cool adventure (which is why you haven't seen me in the cone), but around the house I did - so I wouldn't scratch and pull my stitches out.
We got about 7 inches of snow starting Sunday night and into Monday - yesterday! It was really great - but those of you who know me know I LOVE to build really cool snow forts! I wondered ... could I build one with a cone on my head? Then I re-read my own post and knew I shouldn't let something like a cone stand in my way! Here's how it went:
|Me, checking out the scene|
I knew I couldn't let that snow go to waste! I HAD to build a really cool snow fort!
|"I've got to build a really cool snow fort ... but how?"|
Then it hit me. Bipeds aren't the only ones who can use tools to their advantage!
|"Oh, YEAH! It's my very own snow shovel!"|
I worked really hard. And I have to say, the cone helped me make quick work of it. Here I am, relaxing afterwards:
|"It's not just a really cool snow fort, it's comfy, too!"|
Nothing stands in my way of building a really cool snow fort! Ha ROO!
PS: For those who might wonder, it's called the Comfy Cone. It beats the hard plastic kind, but "comfy - cone" is an oxymoron if you ask me!
