I think I've figured out why the weather this summer is so hot: During last winter's never-ending blizzard all you Yankees got down on your knees at the same time and said, "Dear God, PLEEEEEEEZE make this snow stop and give us some heat." And hearing it from all sides He said, "OK, done." Uh Huh....that was it.
There are some things that you can just count on. Every spring the grass greens up and the trees bloom. The track of the sun moves a little closer to the equator, and the temperature gets
Summertime as a school-age kid was fun, for obvious reason....school was out for 3 months. WooHoo! Even tempered by the fact that I was charged with mowing our lawn, summer was still a fun time.
Now as an adult, however, I see absolutely NO redeeming social value whatsoever to summer. Working/playing outside in the summer makes us HOT. When we get hot we SWEAT. When we sweat we STINK. So basically we just walk around STINKING up the place for 3 months. Why would anyone want to do that? I'm pretty sure "summer" is an old Indian word for "stink".
The only excuse I can figure for there even being a summer at all is because God must have wanted to make it up to you Yankees for sticking you way up north like that with all those blizzards. "Oops, sorry guys. To make it up to you I'll give you a few months of warmth, OK? We good?" But then He realized that was burning all us southerners to a crisp, so He gave us air conditioning....and ice cream with fresh strawberries on top. ;)
*Sigh* Oh well, I guess it's all part of The Plan. Enjoy your Saturday, and stay cool.
