    Sure, it may have been an early indicator of global warming or just some freak weather thing or maybe even a sign of the oncoming apocalypse…

    Whatever it was, I just wish it would happen again.

    See, me and Sheila have been married for 30 years now, and she’s promised that if hell freezes over (again), we will have a threesome with her best friend Beth — the one who always flirts with her a little, when she’s been drinking.

    So, I know it’s probably too much to ask for the same miracle, twice in a lifetime, but PLEEEEEEEASE?
