Post 1319 - Dear Humidity

Dear Humidity:

Thank you for visiting again this year.  We had thought that when you dropped by last month, and left suddenly, you would go visit some other folks for a while.  But, no.  You decided to come back.  What a delightful surprise!

You have come back in a big way.  You have made it impossible to sleep or be nice to one's significant other for long periods of time.  You have made us irritable and forgetful and impatient.  I write from experience.  Why, just this afternoon, we both forgot the door we left through this morning, and caused ourselves much unnecessary inconvenience and vituperation.  My betrothed may start talking to me again in a few days.  Sleeping in the car shouldn't be that bad.  Not sure where Newbie will rest.

Please, leave us now.  We have enjoyed your visit, but it is time for you to go to other parts of the world and leave us.  Nova Scotia summers are brief.  We like it a bit cooler in the mornings and in the evenings.   I want to be able to speak to my significant other for a while without sweat trickling down my nether regions, and the heat frying my brain.  We want to spend the rest of our lives together, and want those lives to be long and rich with incident, not short, and ridden with impatience and an urge to scream at each other.

Go visit New Brunswick or PEI for a while.

They miss you.
