More wise counsel

Okay.  I will stay home today.  Not that I want to (mind you) but I will stay home, drink hot things, gallons of water.  maybe leave the house tomorrow.

I remember praying
For just enough snow
So a friend
Would have to stay home
Not make an unwise decision.
I recruited friends
To pray with me.
They did.
There was enough snow
To stop traffic
Just enough snow
For my friend
To stay home.
Today every time I consider
Leaving the house,
My right nostril
Opens like a spigot.
I get it.
Just because the calendar says
I can drive,
There is more wise counsel.
It suggests:
A nap,
Gallons of water,
Chicken soup.
Maybe driving
