Summer is here. Summer has sprung. Summer sucks. (opinions are purely my own, ok?) I just can't see the appeal... we have oppressive heat, oppressive humidity, paint peeling in the sun, a list of biting insects as long as my arm, we have hot car seats & steering wheels, we have lawns in need of mowing every fifteen minutes. What's to love? Sitting in the sun killing skin cells? Oh joy. MELANOMA!! Yay!! Wasps in your unguarded iced tea? Yippee.
Granted, there ARE a handful of good things.. like just picked tomatoes from the garden, warm fresh strawberries, sweet corn right off the stalk, sweet peaches, juicy melons, crisp peppers.. ok, the best part of summer is the garden.
Is that a suitable trade off for the rest? Yeah, maybe. MAYBE. Then again. Maybe not. I still think I'd rather put on another sweater than slather on more bug dope. Just
