Today’s high temperature in the Twin Cities is expected to hit the mid-60’s.
A seasonal giddiness warning has been issued, effective all day and doubly so during happy hour. We are on a 24 hour recklessness watch.
Gloomy realists will note that when Spring arrives, the dividing line is usually not drawn so sharply. For every mid-March warm spell, there’s a St. Patrick’s Day blizzard on the way.
Sometimes it’s good to look in the record books for proof – thus today’s Baboon blog redux.
During what passed for the Spring in the year 2013, America’s Singsong Poet Laureate, Schuyler Tyler Wyler, climbed into his drafty garret to produce a May Day Ditty that, this year, is more appropriate for March.
Embrace the May, but be a cynic.
Mother Nature’s schizophrenic.
She brings us air so sweet and mild,
and then a freezing zephyr wild.
She’ll green some grass, hey nonny nonny,
then kick your ass a little, honey.
Drape floral garlands ’round your feet,
then fill your face with freezing sleet.
Get out and do your May Pole dance,
but put some hot sauce in your pants.
Though May bringst bees and buds to flower
Conditions changeth by the hour.
What will you do to enthusiastically but realistically accept the gift of an early-season warm day?
