My 81-year-old neighbour stepped out his backdoor to visit me yesterday as I shoveled the 40 centimetres of snow that had fallen in the last day.
Roy: So, they gave you the old heave ho, did they?
Me: It's not 100%, but we're pretty sure.
Roy: (nodding) Hmph.
I shoveled for another minute.
Roy: Well, suck it up. You've got three beautiful kids.
Me: (pausing mid shovel) I will. And I know.
Roy: It's damn cold out here. I'm going in.
