i was not prepared to see you when i walked out the front door this morning. i am not ready to wake up to dark skies. i am not ready to put away my summer flip flops. i am not ready for the all-day yawns you induce. i am certainly not ready for the mile upon mile of traffic backup you cause in the mornings. i am not ready to deal with commuters who forget how to drive when the rains come. i am not ready for bbq season to end. i am not ready to end the long walks on warm summer evenings. i am not ready to deprive the closet of my rain jacket. i am not ready for flat and frizzy hair. i am just not ready.
so please, please be patient and if you must, come back in a few months.
