No, it’s not the summer solstice. It’s just that I took last Thursday and Friday off, and here I am back at work after five days off so this day should prove to be excruciatingly long. And even though it’s a Tuesday that feels like a Monday and a four-day week, I guarantee this week will be torturous. I caught a frog in the pool this morning. Thought I was doing him a favor by keeping him from drowning, but when I chucked him over the fence and into the yard. he landed on his back and wasn’t moving. I don’t know if he landed on his head or broke his neck (do frogs have necks?) or what. Then there was a huge dead snake in the driveway (had to be at least 5 or 6 feet long) when I pulled out this morning. I don’t know if these are omens or not but if you’re a reptile or an amphibian, you might wanna steer clear of my place.

After a relatively mild (yet persistent) winter, I’m cautiously optimistic that summer is finally here. Or at least that we’re done with frost and snow. Last weekend was slightly on the crappy side, but things have gotten steadily warmer all week and they say it should be in the upper 80s by Friday. A shame that the pool’s not open yet. Even if it was miraculously free of algae when I pull the cover off, it’ll be way too cold to swim in. And there aint much propane in the tanks, so I don’t know if I can get it warmed up by Memorial Day. We’ll see, I guess.

On the way to work this morning, I was behind a flat bed truck hauling a burial vault. I hope that’s not some kind of omen for the type of day it’s gonna be. Now matter how terrible things get today, at least it’s finally Friday, and what a big week we’ve had.
