It is the next to the last Wednesday in May, a rainy Wednesday, and yet near enough to Memorial Day to relax into the rain and sigh. Summer is so close I can taste it. Just a few more inches. Can you picture me army crawling across the final days of the school year, my nails digging into the ground and pulling me along? If not, you’ve never been either a teacher or a student. For everyone else, the clock is ticking. I am ready. Until then, the news.
This first story is a big ol’ shout out to the bear: I get it. I would book it too.
This next story gave me all kinds of sensations of a horror movie and not the least bit of creative nudge for scene setting. I get that this is currently an opportunity for the right people, but a part of me wishes it could remain as a creepy tourist attraction.
Duh. We have got to improve our collective science understanding. Knowledge is actually valuable, people.
That’s it for tonight as I slowly peel my fingers from the keyboard and plant them back in the folds of time to claw forward into Thursday. See you in seven.
