Summers always feel nostalgic for me. Carnivals, snow cones, running through sprinklers, the smell of citronella, swimming, and long lazy days always take me right back to my childhood.
There is so much that I miss about those summers, but these are the things I long for the most. Minus the three month break from school. So earlier this week I tried a few. The watermelon was tasty, the popsicles were messy, the tree climbing was way harder than I remember. I reminisced about all the hours spent on my bike (I still ride the same one I rode as a kiddo).
Who is hoarding all the kickballs? I couldn’t find a one, although after a bike ride and a failed attempt at climbing a tree…I can’t say I looked too hard.
I also forgot how when you grab the hose to drink from, the water comes out boiling hot for the first couple seconds. Oh hey third degree mouth burns. Can’t call that enjoyable, but hey once the water chilled down it was just as tasty as I remembered. I might hold onto that one and call it a habit.
The only thing I couldn’t get to was Capture the Flag. Couldn’t find enough
players ahem willing participants. Anyone wanna play? Meet ya at the park in ten, I’ll grab my bike.
What do you miss from childhood summers?
Have you climbed a tree lately?
Have you tried the watermelon Oreos?
Tim wants me to mention that he begged me to change my graphic to “Anyone have a time machine?” but I said I gots to do what I gots to do dude. He knows proper English, but I am too gangster for all that.
