THE STRUGGLE FOR SUMMER
I refuse to give up the last few weeks of summer vacation without a fight. To paraphrase Charlton Heston at a NRA meeting, "Fall is going to have to pry summer out of my cold, dead hands." But seriously...
This could have very well been the fastest summer of my life. It may have been caused by some of the radioactive fall-out as a consequence of getting married. You always hear old married couples vaguely refer to this phenomenon. They say stuff like that, "We got married and here we are 25 years later." Where is the middle to that story? Times goes faster for married people. In some marriages that is a tender mercy. Especially for those until death do ye part types.
Summer school is torturous but it makes summer fly by. Especially when your professor talks just like Vizzini from The Princess Bride. "Plato? Aristotle? Socrates? Morons." I go to class every MWF and just wait for him to scream out "The Cliffs of Insanity" or "Inconceivable."
Another reason behind the speedy summer could be all the time I spent at work. I go in at 2:30pm and I don't come out until 10pm. By this time the sun has already said peace out. There's a reason there are so many V's in Vivint. It turns you into a Vampire. But vampires are in this year. Right?
