The Hubby and I were driving to Deer Valley, Utah. If you have never had the luxury of driving from Phoenix to Utah, it's about a twelve hour ride. So what do you do when you are in the car for 12 hours with your spouse? Well, I'll tell ya.
It starts out with pretty good conversation because you are both excited for the adventure ahead. Then, you put on the iPod and listen to some awesome music. (I might dance and sing really loud. I might.) You stop for gas or food. And there's silence. A LOT of silence. And the silence starts to wear on you, causing you to ask some really random questions.
So out of the blue I ask, "Would you rather freeze to death or die from extreme heat?" Ryan ponders for a few, looks at me and with absolution replies, "I'd rather freeze." Being that we are both from Arizona and that we both know what heat exhaustion feels like, I agree with him and think it makes total sense.
Now, fast forward to Deer Valley, Utah. It's New Years Eve. It's in the negative degrees. Negative degrees!! I've experienced positive degrees but never negative. I mean, icicles were practically forming on my eyelashes! As we were walking down the street, our bodies interlocked, focusing on each step as not to slip on the frozen street, I look to Ryan, and say, "Hey, Baby? Remember that time in the car? When we said we'd rather freeze to death? Well, I'd like to retract my statement." ((Shaking)) "I would d-definitely, much rrrr-rather, dd-die from extreme heat." Ryan freezing as well, 100 percent agreed with me and retracted his too. Because let's face it, being cold is miserable. And that's what makes Arizona so great.
I will take the 60-70 degree weather in January and 110 degree weather in August. Because life is too short to have to wear lots of layers and stay inside all day by the fire. Arizona is its OWN fire. It is warmth, sunshine and blue skies for miles and miles and miles, and frankly, that just makes me happy.
