S.R.C. Survival Tip # 2



For our second essential survival tip, we move from the deadly turquoise waters of the Florida coast, to more frigid northern climes.

Remember Ralphie's icicle warning in "A Christmas Story"?

Like I don't have enough to worry about with our freezing temps.

Every mama-warning in A Christmas Story is true.

First they'll put your eye out, then they kill you.

I've been saved!!! Can I get an *amen*? And maybe some gauze for the now *minor* head wound?

I hate it when an icicle pierces my skull. It ruins my whole day.

One of the first signs that I should be worried about life with Mr. Ex was when he mentioned how death by icesicle stab could be the perfect crime.

At first I was worried that he would say something so stupid. Years later I worried he might test the theory... on me.

I live in Arizona now. Coinsidence? I think not. :-)

Makes an ice cream headache seem like a blessing. Stay away from my house. You've been warned.
