In the summertime when the weather is hot
You can stretch right up and touch the sky
When the weather’s fine
You got women, you got women on your mind
Have a drink, have a drive
Go out and see what you can find
-from the song “In The Summertime”
lyrics by Mungo Jerry
Oh, it’s gonna be another hot one this weekend.
Or as we say here in the U.S., another scorcher.
I think I’ll seek some relief by paddling down the river in my “new” kayak.
If you remember, last weekend I drove to West Virginia to buy a second-hand kayak.
Well, unfortunately, that one didn’t fit — too small.
But I’ve located another one and will hopefully pick it up today, just in time for tomorrow’s heat wave.
And speaking of not fitting…
I think that’s a perfect metaphor for the English industry.
They want you to drive to a school, sit in a desk, do homework, study, take tests…. like you’re ten years old!
Well, that just doesn’t fit.
Let’s talk more about that next week. And let’s see if we can find something that does fit.
