I’ve been a bit busy lately, which is why I haven’t been posting. Not only am I preparing for my trip to St. Andrews, I’ve been doing some field work for the U.S. Dept. of Inclement Weather.
A brutal heat wave has overtaken West Michigan over the last several weeks, so my assistant Riley and I have been sent regularly by the USDIW to investigate local beaches and find out how best to find relief.
We have indeed found that extended swimming, mutual dunking, and body-surfing are most helpful. After trying the chocolate-vanilla twist, raspberry sorbet, and lemon-lime sorbet, we found that this final option was the most refreshing and indeed, most appropriate for the summer heat. We also found that after the sun goes down, extra-large servings of french fries and gyros sandwiches satisfy an appetite worked up in the waves.
We’ll be submitting our findings to the USDIW in a report which will be dictated by me to Riley who will write it up in crayon.
