A wise man, actually a Saudi friend once told me that in his country, there are two seasons — summer one and summer two. I mean this is hilarious in some many ways, considering that Saudi Arabia, by my friends from that country has been described as an oven, a frying pan and a lot of other things relating to simply being much too overheated.
New Englanders joke that there are four seasons in this area — pre winter, post winter, winter and road reconstruction. Hence I have chosen what I think is a pretty interesting title for this entry — summer .0025.
Now the weather lately has been pretty ridiculous. Last week I had to put all the fans into the windows of the apartment I live in because it was too hot. This week I had to take them out. I also had to wear my winter jacket and boots on Tuesday because it was so cold. Today I wore a sweater that I took off because it was too hot. Who knows what joys tomorrow will bring.
And this brings me to the actual topic of this entry — Scooper Bowl. Ah Scooper Bowl, 10 bucks and you are on your way to eating all the ice cream you want. A good thing. A good thing for Jimmy Fund, a good thing for the people of Boston and usually the unofficial kick off of summer.
Although this year, I’m not sure which summer they mean. I’m leaning towards summer .0025.
