Summer feels she needs to make a dramatic entrance.
She has finally decided the time is right to show up. She hopes everyone notices.
She thought she would give the nice people of Indiana a break. Let them enjoy some nice, cool weather. Pretend like it is still Spring.
But No! She heard they were beginning to make fun of her!
She heard they were laughing at her.
She heard they were saying things like, “It’s too late now. Summer will never really show itself this year.”
Excuse Me! Whoa! Summer will never stand for that. Just because she was distracted doing her HEAT thing over in England doesn’t mean she forgot how to make people sweat in the U.S.A.
Summer considers herself a perfectly reasonable season, thank you. She was just trying to be nice. Trying to compensate for the outrageous behavior of her colleague Winter.
What does she get in return? They question her fortitude. They call her weak. They say things like, “This is the summer that never happened.”
Enough is Enough!
She is here now. She is taking a nice, deep breath. She is ready to exhale her lovely heat and humidity upon Indiana and its midwestern neighbors.
Summer demands a certain respect and she fully expects to receive it. This next week will do. They will remember her. They will never question her fortitude again.
