Dear Winter...Thank You!

January 29, 2018

 

Dear Winter,

 

          Generally when you’re thought of, Christmas is filled with White snow, the driveway needs shoveling, the car needs defrosting both inside and out, the roads are covered with salt, highways are crowded with accidents, pipes are freezing and bursting causing problems in homes, and a slip and fall on the ice is definitely what’s next. This winter has shown us that the most important feature on a person to take note of is their eye’s. It’s their eye’s because once they’re dressed, and ready to address you, Winter, that’s all you’ll see. I won't say that I'm miserable in your arms but I will say that I'm annoyed and uncomfortable. Now, that doesn't mean that I like Summer more, it just means that during freezing conditions like these, I tend to miss her more. Winter, please don't take this the wrong way, but this year, I wouldn't be terribly hurt if you went away for a few months. 

 

Goodness, it’s cold!

 

Thank you, Winter! Really appreciate it!

 

 

 

Dear Winter,

 

          For the Elites, Winter, is Summer. For us, Winter presents an open opportunity for a luxuriously fantastic winter vacation at an exclusive resort filled with the best of it all, organized and fulfilled by our private Padalelux, La Societe D’elite. Winter, we will open up doors to glorious luxury.  Winter, we will satisfy our palates with private dining. Winter, the water is warm where we are because our pool is indoors. Winter, the slopes are perfect, so says the full length smile on my face, as my eyes are protected by goggles. And Winter, while you can’t enjoy these immaculate luxury’s, these fine cuisines, these upscale luxury retail shops,  this 5 Star Resort, this indoor pool, this exclusive night life, these private social gatherings, or these perfect ski slopes, your assistance has been greatly appreciated. Frankly, we wish that you could stay longer. Who hurriedly arranged your three month stay, anyway? Shame! Next year, let La Societe D'elite make your arrangements. They'll be sure to keep you around longer, Winter, trust me, I've seen their work.

 

Thank you, Winter! From all of us here in paradise. 

 

Until next year.

 

Yours Truly,

Members of La Societe D'elite
