I never thought I would be so happy to see this summer wind down from the heat wave that reached up to 120 degrees, along with high humidity and isolation in a house all closed up with Einstein Trump and the Zoldorian, not to mention the rats, the fish, the cats, the bird and the large dog.
My alien children received their school schedules today and the relief of knowing my grocery bill will drop by $100.00 a week was almost exciting, not because they won’t be home eating everything in sight, but because I will get to peacefully and quietly grocery shop alone.
Einstein Trump has made his plans of spending the next 5 years working hard on getting a College Scholarship, while the Zoldorian will spend the next 6 years seeing what kind of new disease she can manufacture to get out of going to school.
There are pros and cons to the 3 month summer break. The pros are 2 million people leave this city in the summer and you can actually drive down the road without utilizing your scud missiles on the side of your vehicle. The cons are your children destroying your environment and eating you out of house and home.
I almost welcome the snowbirds this year, but I really wish they would get a clue that driving 15 miles per hour under the speed limit, side by side, is not acceptable in rush hour traffic. A little advice, don’t leave your condo before 10:00 a.m. and be off the streets by 3:00 p.m. Otherwise, enjoy your stay, as the Desert Rats love having you visit but, we are the only ones left when you go home that you actually didn’t kill 😉
