When you're a kid summer is a big deal. No school, do whatever you want.
When you're an adult, summer is no big deal. Gotta work, do whatever you ordinarily do. Still I look forward to summer, and now that it's here I'm still glad winter is gone. I don't normally get all goofy about the weather like some people
, but for whatever reason I don't mind the heat as much as I do the cold.
And even if I do wage war against the heat in the form of my refusal to install my air conditioner
until I absolutely can't take it anymore
, it's all in good fun. Is it weird? Uh, yes. Is it really saving me any money? Who knows. I can't make head nor tails out of my electric bill. If you told me they print the electric bill in heiroglyphic, I wouldn't even blink. I just pay whatever they tell me and smile, because I've been without power in the summer and I'll tell you one thing: it ain't a picnic, and I do not want to do it again.
But I digress. I still think summer is the best time of year even if it doesn't mean what it did when I was a kid. Maybe you do too. Cheers and enjoy.
