Welcome to "The Gods Are Bored," saving energy by frying eggs on the sidewalk!
Hot weather always makes me search for the bored god of Blind Rage. If you know him/her, please tender an introduction.
It is so hot here where we live that the public schools closed down at noon today. A message alerting parents went over the emails yesterday afternoon.
As word spread through the Middle School-osphere, my daughter The Spare got the following instant message:
School out at noon. Thank God for global warming!
The Spare was infuriated by this sentiment. She exhausted every expletive I've taught her (a colorful string of invective). She said someone ought to tell the polar bears that school gets out early, so they'll be happy about it too.
I can't imagine why any deity would want our species as a praise and worship team.
Yours with blind rage,
THE MERLIN OF BERKELEY SPRINGS
