I apologize for not having written anything these past few days, I've taken a break from all the story telling and I'm enjoying summer, so far. I recently had a birthday and it was fantastic, seriously. My friends surprised me by hiding under by bed and in my closet : was a good surprise, really. I got a Holga! I named it Lenny Bacon, and it turns out my best friends Lienne and Monisha also got me a Holga! Isn't that awesome? I wanted one and now I have two! I named the new one Jelly Bean :)
Sweat drips down the back of my neck, like long streaks of wet heat. It dries on my skin and leaves a sticky trail along my back. My exasperated sighs escape my dry lips, my parched throat calling out for something to drink. I imagine ice cubes clinking along a tall glass, filled with a frothy, colourful drink. My limbs tremble with ache, the summer heat has weakend them into lanky, useless accessories. They lay in a bundle on top of me. My brown hair is stuck to my face, tousled and wet with sun and hot air. Like a desperate athlete racing of the gold, my ceiling fan is spinning at its fastest above me, but not fast enough. I squint in the harsh light of the blue sky my windows are letting in. And enjoy the Summer.
