I currently have 90 cents in change. I wonder what I could get with that? If I'm lucky, maybe one of those Ninja Turtle ice cream bars with the gumball eyes... oh wait, this isn't 1988.
I am used to Summer in southern California. Down in SoCal, summer would typically run from March until early November. You could expect temps in the 80's and beyond (like 117 beyond) for most of the year, and I loved it. Yes, I'm a bit overweight. Yes, I'm carrying around a little extra insulation. But still... give me the sun, the heat, and the feelings of a true summer.
One thing I miss about California summers are the beaches.
I miss taking my two sons to the beach. My older feared the waves but loved the sand and sun. My younger loved going out into the ocean with daddy, and crashing into the waves. I could listen to him go "Here comes... a little one!! ...KWASH... Here comes... a BIG one!! ...KWASH..." for hours on end.
Being a red-blooded male, I also miss the eye candy. Scores of women in bikinis. Tan, toned, and everywhere. When you grow up around this, you take it for granted. Now that I am hundreds of miles from any ocean, I miss it.
(It took me long enough, but I now understand why Idaho men were so riled up last fall when a bikini bar opened up in town. When you're cleavage-deprived, it plays games with your mind...)
Not only do I miss the beach, I miss summer in general.
June or not, 40's and 50's are not summer temperatures. I want 80's. 90's. I want to smell sunscreen on people. I want to feel the a/c blowing in my car. I want to see kids running through sprinklers in their lawns.
I want to be able to wash my car on Sunday, and not have 'surprise thunderstorms' pop up on Monday.
Can it be summer in Idaho now? Please?
