January Mosquitoes

If you’re going to live in Minnesota in January, it helps to have a positive attitude.

Best line I heard today was from an “old-timer” — or the PC equivalent, “senior citizen-plus” — that I crossed paths with going into Home Depot (too early) this morning: ‘not too many mosquitoes out today,’ he said, enthusiastically (and without a trace of irony).

“You ‘betcha!”

That’s Minnesotan for “Amen.”
