Random August Musings

Every year, in the middle of summer, I always ask myself, “Summer’s so nice. Why do I think that I prefer fall?”

And then August comes around and says “this is why, fool.”

Speaking of this season, I have a hot take on a wildly loved song: Will Smith’s “Summertime.” Yes, it’s catchy but it’s way, way overrated. It feels like a song that was written in ten minutes by a teenager. It’s just filled with forced rhymes like:

School is out and it’s a sort of a buzz
And back then I didn’t really know what it was

Or this:

And as I think back makes me wonder how
The smell from a grill could spark up nostalgia

Give me Banarama’s “Cruel Summer” instead, everytime.

Yes, this was peak ’80’s fashion

Today was a hot one. It was so hot …

<Psst, this is where you say, “how hot was it?”>

It was so hot, I felt the need to enter a pizza joint and ask why there were no brothers on the wall.

If you’re a Facebook friend of mine, you’ve probably seen that line from me years ago, but if comedians get to use the same jokes from place to place, then so can I.

Do enough people know what a national treasure Giancarlo Esposito is?

It always amazes me how so many people, with no training or experience in a certain area, will stick to an opinion and/or a course of action despite clear evidence and advice from a plethora of experts with decades of education and practice.

I mean, how can there still be people who believe that the earth is flat?

Or refuse to get the fucking shot?

Has anyone conducted any studies into the rise of ear-worm occurrences since TikTok emerged? I’m walking around today constantly singing/saying “I was running through the six with my woes.”

One of the creators that I follow on TikTok (katieprentiss). TikTok crushes are real, my friends.

At least, my mind is not belting out “Make that pull out game weak!” today.

Admission re: the above: I really was singing “I was running through the six with my Rolls.” Thank you, Google, for setting me right.

Have a good day, a good end of the summer, and if you haven’t done so already, get the shot. If not for you or your family, then to help keep the number occupied hosptial beds to a minimum.
