As summer comes to an end it’s hard not to dwell on the summer-exclusive things that you never actually got around to doing. Maybe, for basically the second year in a row, you never actually went to a beach even though you love the beach and were really looking forward to going to the beach since last year you never really went until the very end of the summer when it was a dark and cold day. Hm? Maybe you never really achieved that “beach body” of your dreams, and now it’s going to be winter again and all you’re going to do is get further away from it. Maybe you never had an ice cream cone, or wore a big hat. Maybe you never had a BBQ or went running in the park as the sun set. Or maybe, worst of all, you never learned the proper way to eat a watermelon from a 10-minute video by an old man on YouTube until the very end of summer, when you barely even want to eat watermelons AT ALL anymore. Life can be cruel that way.
I suppose we’ll always have next summer to eat our watermelons with a spoon rather than a fork, and with tunnels, and with marshmallows and WITHOUT salt. Until then, throw this summer in the garbage. It’s useless now. (Thanks for the tip, litescript!)
