I can deal with cool weather. I like fleeces and sweatshirts and comfy clothes. But when my arse started going numb as I sat at the company picnic because the metal picnic table was the same temperature as a freezer shelf I decided maybe it was time to call it a night.
You know the perfect way to start a cool Monday morning? Consume a healthy, balance breakfast of Apple Cider Donuts that you purchased at the orchard this weekend. Like the chips at Ballydoyle Pub, I am pretty sure these were sprinkled with crack too.
I had to wear a jacket to work today. A jacket! In August! Of course as soon as I reached my cubicle I flung it off because it was near 100 degrees inside the office. But still, there is hung all day on the back of my chair. Because I am too lazy to hang it in the closet which is a whopping 10 feet from my desk and if I hang it there I know I will forget it.
I made the official 2010 department calendar today so people can start planning their vacations for next year. And that is something people start doing when summertime is over the the thought of a long winter in the cubicles starts to drive them mad.
People around here have pretty much given up on the Sox and the Cubs and all sports related chit chat is now about the Bears. If I wear my Urlacher jersey on Friday is that too soon?
And the last reason I know that summer is over is that in my candy dish right now someone has dumped an entire bag of those orange and black wrapped Mary Jane peanut butter candies which only come out in the fall. Love them or hate them you have to admit that pretty much means summer is over.
