Even at my age - I am still learning new things about me

Late yesterday afternoon a snow storm hit Toronto and before most of the city had a chance to shovel out from under the blizzard; the snow turned overnight into falling rain. This means the streets and sidewalks are under at least 2 inches of water in the shallow ends. A brisk 20 minute walk to work this morning turned into an ordeal of almost biblical proportions.

But I learned a new allegedly important fact about my body. My toes and feet will show relatively little sign of injury or harm - even if my socks and boots are submerged in ice cold water for at least 60 minutes in temperatures of 2°C.

I haven’t a clue as to what to do with my new found knowledge, but I take comfort in knowing - I can still walk and survive just about anything.

You are prepared for the coming Global Warming induced Ice-Age flooding! I can't wait for when they invent human-gills and we can all go play Aquaman - whoops, there's a shark!

In that case, I guess I have already started to evolve!
