Alligators, birthdays, cousins, drama, etc. Florida gets hot; i just knew love. Moaning never opens people quite realistically. Still, the undercurrent vibe was "xclnt' (youth zeitgeist).
Well you know. I went to Florida for a while because it should be hot there. It was warm, which was almost as nice. Family stuff, shopping, lots of eating. I came home and it was still cold here and that kind of bummed me out. Then the hot water heater broke and I realized it was still REALLY cold here and that bummed me out more. Fortunately I've had a fair bit of work lately so a new hot water heater could be purchased, yea even after I had spent very much money on many fried things, and so that is good.
I have some thoughts but I'm not feeling very writerly; part of the problem I am sure is the rusty fingers syndrome, so I'm putting this here like a sweet dab of rustoleum. A little elbow grease and I'll be good as new.
