The John Pelphrey tenure is analogous with the story, The lady with winter in her hair and summer in her heart.
There once was a lady that couldn't come to terms with the fact time was getting away from her. In order to prove to herself it wasn't, she decided to go out one night and seduce a younger man into coming home with her for a night of love.
Upon arriving at the local tavern, she quickly spotted the young man she desired. She told him, "I may have winter in my hair, but summer resides in my heart". After a few cordial drinks, the lady told the young man again, "I may have winter in my hair, but summer resides in my heart. Take me home and have your way with me".
After arriving at her house, the two were instantly intimate. After awhile, the lady realized something was wrong. She said, "I know what's wrong, it's because of the winter in my hair isn't". The young man replied, "Listen lady, you might have winter in your hair, and summer in your heart, but if you don't get some spring in your ass were going to be here til fall".
The long and short of it is this people: Time is wasting. Pelphrey has to do something this year. The promise of the young men next year can't be enough.
