Under the Weather
I’m going to complain about the weather. I’m just getting it out there upfront, so you can all be ready with the “back” button, because, look, I get it: it’s annoying when people talk about the weather all the time. I know. The weather is annoying too, though, so, you know, if you want to complain to someone, you should probably complain to IT, shouldn’t you?
Actually, can I do that? Can I complain to someone about the weather? Because I feel like that should be a thing: that there should be some way for me to complain about the summer I’ve been cheated out of. Other than just whining about it on my blog, I mean: that doesn’t count. But honestly: this has been the worst summer I can remember (and I grew up in Scotland, so I can remember a LOT of bad summers), and I’m sure that if I could just speak to someone about it, they’d surely agree with me that it’s JUST. NOT. FAIR. They’d be all, “Yes, Amber, you’re quite right: I can see from your file that we owe you a summer: now, when would you like to take it?”
Ideally, of course, I’d like to take it NOW. NOW would be a good time for summer. Because, look, I’ve been patient (well, sort of. OK, not REALLY, but humour me here…); I’ve done my time. I waited it out through autumn and winter: I read at least 5,000 blog posts starting with the words “autumn is my favourite season!” and I thought, “OK, then, enjoy it while you can, because summer is MINE, and soon my day will come!” And then I cackled like the villain in a really bad horror movie, and sat down to wait.
But my day DIDN’T come, did it? Because SUMMER didn’t come. Woe! So, I would like a do-over, is what I’m saying. Or a refund, at the very least. I vote we just move summer to later in the year (Sorry, autumn lovers, but you’ve had your fun: you got to have TWO “autumns” in one year, so you really can’t complain. No you can’t. Stop it.) and that way everyone gets a turn with the whole “favourite season” thing. Sound fair? OK, so who do I speak to to get the ball rolling?
