Dog days

July 29, 2010

We are entering the dog days of summer. The days when it is too damn hot. Dogs lay under trees. Panting. Asphalt is sticky. Popsicles wrappers are scattered everywhere. Car interiors are like pizza ovens. It is the days when people lose their sense of purpose. It is too  hot to be ambitious. Parishioners wear shorts to church. Old women sit in the shade with their bare feet in pails of cold water. Squirrels pass out from dehydration. Hydro wires buzz. And young boys lay in ditches. Philosophizing. School is still weeks away. This must be heaven.
