Rainy Weekend Activities
The weekend was crappy and rainy which took away the fun backyard lounging action I had planned. Instead, Suz and I decided to do regular stuff, like grocery shopping and the like.
During our grocery-shopping trip, I missed out on a sweet car accident photo opportunity. I always bring my camera with me everywhere I go. So, when we were driving to the grocery store, and approached the smashed Volvo and Camaro, I tried to pull out my camera, only to find that it was MIA.
Suz spent the next 10 minutes trying to calm me down. The little tantrum I threw was befitting of a 3-year-old. I was really mad. Mad at my stupidity and forgetfulness. And our drive home wasn't any better. We passed the accident again, and found that the cars were still in prime photo-snapping positions, with clusters of teenagers standing around their crunched cars.
The rainy weekend continued taunting me, as it layed out another accident before my eyes. I found myself sans camera yet again as I headed to a bar to watch my buddy Krevin sing some karaoke. The accident this time, was a vehicle spun around backwards, stuck in a ditch beside the off-ramp which was my destination. With numerous cars blocking the ramp, I had to keep driving.
I like rainy days. And I like taking pictures of accidents. But in the short days of summer I long for good weather and hot sun. I love the sound of the cicada, high up in the trees, its loud buzz informing us that summer is in full swing.
I wish I could have sat under my patio umbrella with a nice drink while the bees and hummingbirds shared the flowers beside me. I've always got my camera when I'm at home, so there won't be any tantrums thrown in my backyard. Unless I spill my Southern Comfort & Coke. Then there'd be a big tantrum. And a picture of it.
