Yawn- an involuntary intake of breath through a wide open mouth; usually triggered by fatigue or boredom.
Have I been wishing the summer away? Yes, I think I have. How could I do that? Summer was always my favorite season. This summer, we've had our share of very hot and humid days that have sapped all energy from my body along with most of the motivation I had to get anything done. It hasn't helped that my work environment is excruciatingly dull and sometimes very annoying.
There is still precious little news about what, exactly, is going on at work; management has not told us a thing, but evidently, the building has been sold, and the returns department is definitely leaving the building in late October. Two of the areas have already left. It's going to be very quiet by the time it's my time to turn in the ugly badge and say adios. Even the food service is leaving in a few days. It will be NO SOUP FOR YOU! to any unlucky soul who forgets to pack a lunch, from now on.
Breathe in, breathe out, vacation is almost upon me. Perhaps that's another reason for looking forward to summer's demise.
A question: do you associate crickets with the end of summer? I would have sworn that crickets used to make a late August arrival in these parts, but it was not like that at all this year. They were everywhere in July. And I'm not seeing bats in the morning, anymore, and I miss them.
