On Summer

I know that summer doesn’t officially begin until this weekend, but when the temperature is hitting 91 degrees, I don’t think we can call that spring, can we? My thoughts about summer:

  • Reading.
  • Cookouts.
  • Watching friends play softball (I retired after rupturing my Achilles tendon).
  • Wimbledon.
  • July 4 celebrations.
  • The summer movie-going season.
  • Fishing.
  • Going for ice cream.
  • It lasts too long.
  • It’s way too hot (about 40 degrees hotter than I prefer).
  • Bugs, more specifically, bees.
What I Miss:
  • Going to the drive-in theater.
  • Taking one my nieces to an amusement park when she was small. She’d squeal on the rides, and demand my attention, and I loved it.
  • Cruising with friends for the mere sake of it.
  • The A/C can never be set too low. It just can’t.
  • Baseball is still a great sport—even if many of the current occupants have tainted it.
  • Dressing down is more accepted—that’s a good thing.
