Yes, may I please speak to January?
Hi January. This is the Gulf Coast. We'd like to request a refund. You barely showed up this year and allowed Spring to barge straight through the door. Now we have Spring flowers everywhere, and by Easter, they'll be gone and things will look odd without them. Easter without Azaleas? This is just wrong, and we demand you make things right.
Be careful what you wish for. Don't you remember about five years ago when I switched places with April and it snowed on Easter? And stop your crying, because if you take another look at your name tag, you'll see you're the GULF COAST. It's in my contract that I can screw with you whenever I want.
Oh. Well, when you put it like that, okay. Just please take it easy on the Dogwoods.
That's it. I'm going to warn February about you. (Click.)

O, wind, if winter comes, can Spring be far behind?
