I’ve been cranky for the past 24 hours for two reasons.
#1. I’ve had a migraine for two days. I’ve had migraines since birth and they usually last at least two days for me. When I was little, they made me throw up, but I’ve since trained myself to hold it together. I’ve seen doctors for it, but I can never afford the medication I need. ($200 for nine pills, and I need two pills per migraine.) My friend gave me some of her prescription medication. I’m eternally grateful since I didn’t have to pay for it, however it leaves me with horrible side effects of dry mouth, nausea, and aching muscles. So no, I can’t feel my headache anymore thanksforasking but I do feel as though I have the flu.
#2. Snow is in the forecast for tomorrow. Snow. In. Florida. And this would be the SECOND time that it has snowed in Florida this winter.
Now, please, I work in news. I am fully aware of the fact that just over 63% of the United States is blanketed in white powder. And my friends who live up north claim that I have no cause for complaint. But I disagree. To all my friends who are up to their noses in snow right now: you chose to live up north, crazies! I chose to live in Florida, THE SUNSHINE STATE. I chose beaches, 110 degree summers, 70 degree winters, and 100% humidity. That’s what I signed up for. Not snow. And my migraines are triggered by changes in barometric pressure. So precipitation will undoubtedly aggravate my already throbbing skull, and frozen precipitation will only make me angry on top of that.
I. DID. NOT. CHOOSE. SNOW!
I’m being weather raped.
You think I can convince my Chicagoan husband to move to the equator with me?

The phrase “weather raped” (a) needs to be used more in everyday language and (b) made this blog.
If winter keeps doing this to me, that phrase will inevitably get used more by me, at least.
I live further south so I only got weather body slammed.
Right?! I’m a Central Fla girl too, and I remember this winter because I was in the middle of summer in South Africa and got all these crazy e-mails from family saying, “IT’S SNOWING HERE!” and I was all, “SUCKS TO BE YOU, I’M LAYING OUT BY THE POOL, NOOBS!”
