on summer

By | June 20, 2006

Question: Do you like fishing?

Answer: No, I don’t see the point of fishing. Depending on where you are, you can’t really eat them. And if you could, you’d have to clean them. That’s work and I don’t like to mix work with so-called relaxation. Throwing them back just strikes me as weird. Why bother? There just seems to be no point to it. So the answer is no, I don’t like fishing. Please don’t ask me to go fishing with you.

Question: Do you like sitting outside when it is very hot?

Answer: No, I enjoy air conditioning.

Question: Do you enjoy sitting on a beach?

Answer: In a swimsuit? No, I get bored quickly just sitting on some sand. Also I can never find a comfortable position for reading. Plus, I don’t like to swim (I can, I just prefer not to).

Question: Do you like to go on picnics?

Answer: Where is this going exactly? No, I like restaurants. I don’t mind sitting on a patio with a beverage but that counts as a restaurant. That’s as close to a picnic as I’ll get.

Question: It’s summer. What do you like to do then?

Answer: Wait for the fall. Wait and wait. It’s going to be 27 degrees tomorrow…no more questions please, I’m getting overheated.

    In the fall you can hunt.
    How about hunting?
    Do you like to go shoot things and eat them?
    Fill up the deep-freeze with meat for winter.

    Now that sounds like great fun. I think I would enjoy hunting. I would especially enjoy the bright orange vest and other gear…I love gear. Can I have a compass too? (Note: I have used a shotgun before but I hit some tin cans and not actual woodland creatures). I do eat meat however and know they don’t “make” it at the supermarket in the back somewhere.

    I used to know some guys that were “bow hunters” and “black powder” hunters.
    Now that puts a bit of excitement and challenge into the whole production.

    Indeed it does. It sounds a bit too exciting…where do I sign up for this type of outdoor fun? I bought an orange vest today. Who needs shoes when you can get entire orange outfits? The only thing is — if I actually shoot anything I won’t be able to clean it. I can’t do a fish after all and they’re small things.
