I’ve put the plastic and duct tape away in an easily accessible place, instead of sitting at the ready on my windowsill. I’ve stopped wearing my flak jacket on the 4 train. I only report every other “suspicious” individual to Homeland Headquaters.

Or maybe they’re saving it up for the next stinking snow storm which is supposedly on its way here. Why can’t we nuke the snow?
