Smells Like Summer
Smell is supposed to be the strongest sense to recall memory. I love the smell of summer. Humid air, fresh cut grass, mulch, and charcoal. Here are a few things that the smell of summer reminds me off:
-My brother and his rope. My brother didn't have a blanky that he carried around. He had a rope. Boy could we get ourselves in trouble with that rope. Laundry shoots, climbing off the porch....
-F.C. Summer Church Camp. I went to camp from my 3rd grade year till after my senior year. No a/c, but great friends, fun, and pranks!
-Playing in the creek behind cooper court. We had two otters that lived back there. They were a blast to watch. I would catch crawdads and splash in the water.
-Crawling in storm drains to look for the ninja turtles. Kawabanga dude!
-First dating Anton. We started dating in the summer right after I got back from Africa. We had lots of nights talking outside till 5 am. Crazy man because he worked full time as a Chemist at this time. He was a good one as well. He made several developments for gas additives. Now he is an electrician and loves it.
-The lake. My family weren't big lake people. I love the lake, so I would always try to hitch on with some friends as a kid to go. Man I want to go to the lake so bad!
-Pregnant and taking 3 mile walks with my dad on the railroad tracks.
