That’s right, America. It’s a snow day!
Snow days are different. They’re not just days without school–Saturdays and Sundays. They’re not just holidays–Thanksgivings and Christmases. No, snow days are special.
They’re days off for no reason but insufficient infrastructure.
But that’s the whole point. A snow day is a suspension of reality because reality has failed. In that way, a snow day is a complete confirmation of what every child believes: The world sucks, and it’s suckiness will end it.
Come to think of it, this is pretty much the belief of every prophet since the beginning of time.
A snow day is rowing from Alcatraz. It’s cashing out before the dot com bubble bursts. It’s fighting your way out of the shroud and kicking back the stone and scaring off the centurions and chatting up Mary Magdalen on your way to the sky.
Yeah, a snow day is feeling the world crash around you under its own corrupt weight and rising above it all.
It’s a get-out-of-jail-free day.
It’s a jubilee day.
