Tomorrow ushers in the first day of June, but from my notes it appears that summer is already here. Here's the evidence:
1. Sports Illustrated today proclaimed the Cubs' season is as good as over. Their numbers department took a look at the playoffs since the wildcard expansion in baseball (1996) and only 95% of those teams that were 5 games below .500 or 5 games behind the division leader made the playoffs. Perhaps you've heard of the acronym for the Cubs: Completely Useless By September. I should petition to rename the team Cubj! You know, j for June.
2. I hung the laundry on the line this morning and it took literally less time for it to dry than the next load spent in the washer. Sheesh.
3. After my morning run, I'm now considering having gills implanted. So humid. So hard to breath. So sticky. So yuck.
4. I cleaned out my closet this morning and left a shoe box on the floor for what was merely a minute or two. When I turned to pick it up, Gus was firmly planted inside. The LAZY days of summer are here (well, at least according to Gus).
