Dang The Sun is Hot

The sun is a mass of incandescent gas a gigantic nuclear furnace!

I like They Might Be Giants and their clever little songs that are so cheery. So I wrote about my working environment a few days ago. Yesterday for work 2 other staff and I took a group of kids to the local pool. I did not wear sunscreen.....go ahead...yell....and I am paying the price today. But I will not complain because it was my own fault. But on my defense, I have to get that initial burn to save myself from burning all summer. Shut it, it does make sense. To me.

Since it is, yet again, over 90 degrees today, we spent the morning outside and now we are inside. But heading off to the pool and actually the whole summer program, makes me long to be back in camping. I miss the lake, I miss campfires, I miss my friends, I miss the person I was at camp, I miss the kids, I miss the snorting deer, I miss all-camp games. I miss the cabins, the weekends, the food. It has been 10 years since I worked at camp. I guess you can take the girl out of the camp, but not the camp out of the girl. We have another staff reunion this coming October, and I can hardly wait.

I totally agree with you about the initial burn for the summer. It does help the rest of the summer out. I can't believe I know someone else who likes They Might Be Giants!
