This week’s tweet comes from Conor Galvin, an assistant writer who works on It’s Always Sunny. His tweet honestly made me laugh and related to how I’ve been feeling these past few days.
When the weather starts getting really nice, while I’m jumping for joy, sometimes it can be a bit overwhelming. Especially here in Olean, NY where the winters last longer than in Game of Thrones and seem to get colder each year, the change to nice weather is quite a shock. Over the past few weeks, there have been many days where I’ll see the temperatures in the 60’s and 70’s, as I sit in my dorm-room bed watching Netflix or Hulu on my laptop…
Sometimes I just can’t even trick myself into believing that I have the energy or desire to get out of bed and put on shoes in order to go outside, no matter how nice the weather. Then even if I do get outside it’s like, what do I do? I’m certainly not gonna “run” or “jog” or “exercise,” so that basically leaves sitting in the grass on a scratchy blanket pretending I’m comfortable. I need incentives to make it out like beer, or hot-dogs, or beer.
Despite my pessimism, I do love enjoying the summer sun especially on days like today (happy Cinco De Mayo!). There’s nothin’ better than being outside with all your friends drinking and having fun, because when the sun is out, everyone is in a better mood. However, I don’t seem to know how to take this sun in any moderation. Exhibit A being when I was outside all day on Sunday and got sun poisoning as a result, because my dumb ass didn’t wear sunblock and got burnt like a campfire hot-dog.
Maybe it is better if I follow Conor’s lead, just give it up, and stick to staying indoors with pizza.
