Up on the Rowlf

So I was up on my roof shoveling snow and I couldn't stop thinking about Rowlf the Dog. Thinking about Rowlf the Dog was preferable to thinking of myself rolling off the edge. I wondered if the guys who work him really know how to play the piano. I'll bet they do. Then I started picturing him shoveling the snow with me. He was wearing a striped hat and a scarf and big boots. This kind of fantasy made the work much easier. I think from now on whenever I'm doing something I don't want to do I'm going to picture a Muppet doing it too. Kermit picking up after the dog on his walk, Gonzo lecturing, Fozzie painting the side of the garage, the Swedish Chef paying the bills... the list could go on & on...
