I never used to worry about splatting; I expected to do it once or twice a winter. A few years ago, however, I splatted a good one and cracked my tailbone. Medical science has made great strides, but they still can't do too much for you if you crack your tailbone except recommend painkillers.
Oh, yes: They will give you a strange pillow, which you have to carry around with you so you can sit down. This pillow draws everyone's attention ... and their comments. It is the perfect embodiment of the phrase 'insult added to injury.'
Stay alert, Minnesotans. There's still plenty of time left to splat! We're not out of the winter yet.
