It's called Bicycle Disease
People with Bicycle Disease get up at 4:00 am to drive to Corvallis in the snow for a mountain bike race tellingly named 'Mudslinger'. People with Gardening Disease observe the prep, kiss the mad husband goodbye, then head indoors for another cup of coffee and a spot of fireside reading until it gets light. At which time they head outdoors into the -- er, delightfully refreshing spring snowstorm -- to plant sweet potatoes.
