“Ah, springtime! That time of year when I want nothing more than to shut the windows, shut the door, and turn on the air-conditioning…”

Springtime… the one time of year that I am GUARANTEED to be inside. It’s allergy season, folks. And it’s that early time of allergy season when they’re just starting up again, and the Claritin-D is at home. So, needless to say, I’m glad that McGraw-Long is air-conditioned. Springtime is the time when what is seen as beauty to most people is loathed by people like myself. When the trees start blossoming, and the leaves start to bud, when the bushes all start to flower… is when I wish I had one of those nifty devices commonly known as chainsaws. Just take every blossoming tree, bush, flower, and the like, and put the chainsaw (powered on, of course), to its bottom. Any other time of the year, all of this plant life is great. In the spring… I CAN’T STAND THEM!!!
