When you're a kid summer means no school, so that's
when an adult, especially in some parts of the country, summer means:
the smell of mildew
your clothes always being soaked and sticking to you
"air that you wear"
snakes in the road
everybody just walking around in slo-mo and lollygagging
and many, many more irritants
as others have commented, give me fall. Things come back to life, the weather is brisk, and you feel alive again.
The only plus of sumnmer is baseball, you can have the rest of it.
Give me a fall overcast day, grey skies, getting dark around 3:00 pm, and brisk temperatures, when you can feel "The Ride of the Valkyries" playing in the air!
