How To of the Week: Slip On Ice

How To of the Week: Slip On Ice

[Soundtrack: Foreigner - "Cold as Ice"]

I wasn't originally planning on blogging about this, but after I saw the ice angel I made on the pavement, I couldn't resist.

To set the scene, I took Bo out for a potty break in the midst of Snowpocalypse 2011. I carefully took each step towards his poo factory out back. The next thing I knew, I was airborne and Bo shot out of my arms like a greased up fumblerooski. When I came to, I looked behind me and saw Bo doing cartwheels through the snow. He got up and stumbled around until I was able to retrieve him.

So here's how to slip on ice.

  1. Walk outside on a giant patch of ice.
  2. Place one foot in front of the other.
  3. Grasp onto anything around you that might keep you vertical.
  4. Take a deep breath.
  5. Think of something random other than walking on a patch of ice.
  6. Bust your ass.
