It’s October 5th, I have the air conditioning on and there are buds on my tomatoes.

I’m sorry, but if this is global warming’s impact on my life (without me packing up and moving to get this), I am OK with it.

That is SO un-politically correct and selfish and I recycled before recycling was cool and blah blah blah I know it’s wrong to even THINK this.

But I’m like a fish without water, so being barefoot in shorts plucking basil on a hot October day is as close to perfect as I could hope for right now. I’ll just need to take a shower instead of a plunge into the ocean…

*currently called ‘climate change’ but formerly called ‘acid rain,’ ‘eating away at the ozone’ (or it eating us or something)…My term of choice is still ‘global warming.
