Beyond the looking glass and inside my magic underpants

Winter is a curious season for men. One step out makes you smaller, and a while back in the warmth makes you tall. I'd settle for something in between.

You spend all day working outside in the frosty winter air. Skip in for a pee break and the thought that your scrotum had sprouted a toadstool gives you a panic. It takes you a moment to realize that the hookah-smoking caterpillar was not able to be summoned from his lair. While it was disconcerting at first, you take comfort in knowing that no matter how big or small your caterpillar may be, I can always go pee.

The Wonderland doesn't stop there. You should see it when the Mad Hatter stops by for tea....Change places!

Sometimes you grow too big for your house and an appendage pops right out of the front door.

Playing chess with the queen...well, strategy is essential in checking your mate.

After all the adventure is done, there is still the Cheshire Cat grinning his grin from within. So pleased with the deed....You can take the smile from the cat, but not the cat from the smile!

I'll never think of wonderland the same way again.

Wait, so Alice was a tranny?

I'm not sure how you went from winter pee to wonderland, but hey, it's just another thing to love about your mind. xo

Just don't lick anything metal while you are outdoors. That's the sagest winter advice I know.

Julie~ This is why my imagination got me into so much trouble growing up.

Jay~ It does make the story more interesting.

Jules~ My mind is a freaking rainbow.

Christielli~ I have done that once. It hurt pulling my tongue back off.
