Hot Summer Nights
It is midnight.
It is 89 degrees in my house.
There is no wind at all.
I have no A/C (I live in Washington...it doesn't get hot here you know...)
I went digging in the freezer for some ice cubes and ran upon a bag of ice pops. Generic ones. Ones like in Nicaragua where you can almost taste the green #68 and yellow #9846 and you don't care at all. Ones that bring back a thousand and one warm nights of summers long past.
Like edible memories.
I don't know where they came from.
I don't care at the moment. Probably my awesome wife.
I haven't been this happy with a surprise find in a long time.
It is the simple things in life.
Now, if you will excuse me, the electric blue one is calling my name...
