Jump On In Polar Bears of America---The Water's Frigid!


A slightly frazzled woman in her late 50's was found wandering in a Dallas supermarket this evening clad only in faded Nick & Nora Christmas pajamas and ratty UGGs while clutching a mug inscribed "I'm a Pepper". The employees of Wal-Mart failed to notice anything out of the ordinary until she was overheard mumbling "Hot Dr Pepper...wouldn't you like to be a pepper too...I need hot Dr Pepper!" More at eleven.

In other related news, the overnight forecast calls for a low of 19-24 degrees in the greater North Texas Pole region.

This is I.P. Icycles reporting for Channel BRR News.

It sounds like rather balmy weather to me :) Try 20 below weather, with a 40 below windchill. Now that's cold. Brrrrr! You gals gotta toughen up. LOL!

Something sure is wonky with the weather, because it's supposed to be 18 degrees down here, too!

But Hot Dr. Pepper? I'll pass. :-)

I'm with Vintage Girl. What can we spike that DP with to warm up our toosies as we wander around in our jammies? It's 22 here now, I feel like I'm in Texas, haha. More snow so it's all good out my window. Stay warm.

Welcome to my world... I know I.P.Icicles too...my daughter keeps begging me to come to the store and work with her, but I just can't get the thought of sitting on that cold truck seat outta my mind...maybe I'll see 'er in the Spring!!!

Hi Friendy,
Wow...that cold for TEXAS is Crazy!!! I remember back to sweating in the fields of Round Top & havin to sit in Miss Teresa booth next to her ginormous fan in order to stop sweatin with the oldies...oh I didn't mean you!! LOL {as I recall, alot of us sat there to beat the heat}
But what I'm really interested in is the lady my age wondering around in her Nick & Nora jammies. I had those too, mine had breakfast food on them, eggs & toasters. I like hot peppers, I don't have a mug, but that doesn't at all seem strange.
What does that say about me???
Keep me updated friend, you may be helping me avoi a calamity!!!
Big Hugs,
Susie Pearl

Does that mean snow for Texas??! 19 degrees is hardly cold in my book, when we have wind chills in negative numbers most of the time in Jan, but I do hope you are able to stay warm and cozy since you are not used to such cold!! :) Hot Dr. Peper with a shot of beer might do the trick :))

Happy New Year Debbie!

Hugs ~

Well, Ms. IP Icycles of BRR News, your indepth report made me laugh my butt off...and that is lots of laughing! By the way, I hear that the frazzled lady is in her VERY late 50s! :) I haven't had Hot Dr. Pepper for twenty something years. I always think of football games when I think of Hot Dr. Pepper. Life is going to be fun this next decade. I might suggest that you need to stock up on your supply of jammies because you might not get out of them for the next ten years!
