A Jamaican's First Snowflakes
Diary of a Jamaican who moved to Canada.
Started snowing. The first of the season and the first real snow we have ever seen. The wife baked buttered buns and we sat by the window watching the soft flakes drift down; clinging to the trees and covering the ground, could never do anything like this in Jamaica. IT WAS BEAUTIFUL.
We woke to a lovely blanket of crystal white snow covering the landscape. What a FANTASTIC sight! Every tree and shrub was covered with a beautiful white mantle. I shoveled snow for the first time and loved it. I did both our driveway and sidewalk. Later, the city snowplough came along and accidentally covered up our driveway with compacted snow from the street. But the driver smiled and waved and I waved back and shoveled again. Canadians are so friendly! Unlike those people who work the corporate area.
It snowed an additional twelve inches last night and the temperature has dropped to around four degrees, the cold weather is not so bad, we can take this, not at all as bad as we imagined. Several limbs on the trees and shrubs have snapped due to the weight of the snow. I shoveled our driveway again. Shortly afterwards the snowplough came by and did his trick again. Much of the snow is now brownish gray.
Warmed up enough during the day to create some slush, which soon became ice again. Bought snow tyres for both cars. Slipped on my batty in the driveway, paid $130 for the chiropractor, but fortunately nothing broken. More snow and ice expected
Still cold. Sold my wife's BMW and bought a 4x4 in order to get to work. Slipped on the guardrail and did considerable damage to the right fender. Had another 15 centimetres of white shit last night. Both vehicles covered in salt and crud. More shovelling in store for me today. That damn snowplough came by twice yesterday.
2 degrees outside! More rahtid snow. Not a tree or shrub in our yawd that hasn’t been damaged. Power was off most of the night. "Blouse and skirt" got mi first heating bill. Tried to keep from freezing to death wid candles and kerosene heater, tipped over and nearly burn the rahtid house down. I managed to put the flames out but suffered second degree burns on my hands and lost all my eyebrows and eyelashes. Car slid on the white shit on the way to the hospital and was a write-off.
Rahtid white ting keeps coming down! I have to put on all the clothes I own just to get to the mailbox. If I ever catch the bitch that drives that rahtid snowplough, I gwine mek him mumma feel it. I think he hides around the rahtid corner and wait for me to finish shoveling, then comes down the street at about 160km/hr and cover up wi driveway again. Rahtid power still off. The toilit froze and parts of the roof have started to cave in.
Twelve more centimetres of rahtid snow and rahtid ice and God knows what other kind of rahtid white shit fell last night. I wounded the rahtid snowplough with the pick, but the driver got away. The wife took off and left me. The rahtid car won't start and I think I'm going rahtid snow-blind. I can't move my rahtid toes, haven't seen the bomboclaat sun in weeks and there's more rahtid snow predicted. Wind chill is 30 rahtid degrees below rahtid zero!!
Mi a move back to JA cause dis ya place a go kill mi!

|Dana Marcy||I know a ghetto version of this Yellow, Pink and Green joke but I can't remember it. I know my husband has it on one of his joke files at home. If I can find it I'll post it here because it's just as cute as this one.|

A laugh for the day...no offense to anyone!
Pedro was trying to get into the U.S.legally through Immigration.
The Officer said "Pedro, you have passed all the tests, except there is
one more test. Unless you pass it you cannot enter the U.S."
Pedro said, " I am ready."
The officer said "Make a sentence using Yellow, Pink and Green."
Pedro thought for a few minutes and said "Mister Officer, I am ready."
The Officer said "Go ahead."
Pedro said "The telephone goes green, green, green, and I pink it up, and
say, 'Yellow, this is Pedro.'"
Needless to say, Pedro now lives in a neighborhood near you.
