Today is the first day of Autumn.
This means it is time to say goodbye to Summer. It is time to realize that we can do better than Summer. For some of us, perhaps it’s time to pretend we never even met Summer. That’s right, Summer. We’ve moved on.
Need more proof, Summer? Look at my new relationship status on Facebook:
Now, some folks (mostly friends and co-workers of Summer’s) might say that I simply couldn’t handle Summer because it was just too hot for me. And, ya know what, maybe that’s true. Maybe I prefer a season that I can curl up and read with, a season who can wear a light sweater or jacket without getting overheated, a season who can pull off colors like orange, golds and browns. A season like Autumn.
But, hey, no hard feelings, Summer. We had a good few months and that’s more than a lot of people can say. To show that Summer isn’t all bad, I have put together a sort of retrospective of all things you.
Bats, Balls, Bros and Brews
We All Scream For Tetraethyllead
Even Lazier Days Of Summer
Fire Up The Grill
Out Of Campsite, Out Of Mind
End Of Summer, Back To The Grind
Who knows, Summer. Maybe a year from now, we’ll meet again and things will be different. Maybe things with Autumn won’t work out and I’ll be looking for a whole new season (not likely!) in a few months. I don’t know how these things work. I’m not some, like, seasonologisticist or fancy-schmansy whatever. I’m just a boy standing in front of a season and wanting to put on longer sleeves. If that’s wrong, then I don’t want to be right.
