Posted 5/23/2007

Summer isn’t even officially here yet and we’ve already found ourselves sitting at our desks fantasizing about pools, picnics, and playing hooky. How can we be stuck in the office when there’s so much sunshine to soak up outside? Can we maybe go on a field trip, or have work outside? Can we forget all this reporting on current events nonsense and go run around in some sprinklers, or perhaps make our very own Slip ’n Slide?

Unfortunately, our bosses continue to insist that we come in at least five days a week and slave away on the thing you’re holding in your hand (or eye-caressing online). But we swear, promise, and solemnly vow that we are going to take full advantage of summer this year. We’re not going to spend the season cooped up indoors like we usually do, wondering where the summer went.

This is the year we’re finally going to go to those outdoor films in Little Italy. We’ll see you at Artscape and African American Heritage and all the ethnic festivals. We’re going to get that public-pool pass and spend our days submerged, not caring if there’s the tiniest bit of flab hanging out of our bikinis. We’re planning that group tubing trip on the Gunpowder Falls that we’ve been talking about since last year, and a weekend getaway to Ocean City or Rehoboth Beach or some other place where water hits sand. In short, we’re actually going to use the ridiculous gigantic summer calendar we put out ever year. And we’re going to have so much summer fun that fall is going to be a relief. Care to join us?
