Happy Groundhog Day. Oh, that’s right! You’re from the UK, so you have no idea what this silly little US/Canadian holiday is all about. I’d be happy to explain.
You see, every February 2nd, a groundhog is let out of a cage, and if he sees his shadow, we will have 6 more weeks of winter.. I mean, one lucky girl from Pennsylvania gets her dream come true. Let me back up: a girl from PA is randomly chosen on February 1st by the Chairman of the Ministry of Groundhog Day (why only a girl in PA? Well, it’s where Punxsutawney Phil is from, of course). This lucky girl puts the names of 5 lucky men into a hat. She pulls out a name, and if Punxsatuawney Phil sees his shadow, she WINS! Whatever guy’s name she draws from that hat is required to provide her with an entire evening of sexual bliss.
So, get this… I am from PA, right? Yesterday afternoon I’m just minding my own business, getting ready for the SuperBowl (oh yeah, another US event- I’ll tell you about that sometime) when the Chairman of the Ministry of Groundhog Day calls ME and tells ME that I am this year’s lucky winner! OMG! I was so excited. I spent the rest of the evening choosing my 5 lucky men (Okay, I’m exaggerating- it took me all of 3 minutes to chose) I chose my husband, of course (for good measure) you, Adam Brody, you and well, you. (They never said I couldn’t put the same name in more than once, and I wasn’t gonna ask them to clarify the rules.)
So, I got up around 2am to drive out to western PA to hang out with my furry little friend, Phil. The sun was about to rise, so I picked out a name- whatdoyaknow. I picked YOU! (the odds were kinda good, huh?) I waited nervously to see what Phil would see. I slapped him a little high five through his cage and then the Minister of Groundhog Day let him out….
PHIL SAW HIS SHADOW
So… knowing you, how respectful you are of people, woman, and incredibly stupid American holidays…. um, what time works for you this week? I’m available, uh, now… 5 minutes from now… all day, tonight, tomorrow, Wed-Sunday until…forever….
Looking forward to celebrating this wonderful holiday with you,
