Well, I could list a thousand reasons off the top of my head, take a deep breath, and list a thousand more. But for now I will present just one.
For the first time in much longer than I can remember (we're talking at least a decade here), I ran through a sprinkler just for the fun of it. I would say that it makes me feel young again, but no, I still feel old. Just happy.
And please spare me any cracks about my dead lawn. We live at the top of a sloping hill, it has been unnaturally dry here this Summer, and we're conservation friendly here in Seattle.
Plus, that just wouldn't be nice, and I know underneath it all you're really a nice person.
