Baby, It’s Cold Outside
School is closed, what is the first thing that pops in your mind? Comment below what you think.
The 1st thing I thought when I heard was “Yay! I can sleep in!” Also all the homework I had not yet finished, I can now do tomorrow (today), and chill tonight. But that never stops teachers from emailing you telling to “print this out, fill this in, read this, do #1,2,3,4,5,6,7 in your textbook..” Doesn’t that annoy you? Snow/cold days are supposed to be a day off from school and all!
Tommorrow when I wake up, who knows what time, I’ll beg my mom to help me make my favorite homemade pancakes! The recipe is below, if it’s coming from me, you know it’s good!
