I hate to say it but I'm predicting that this month will be terribly hot and dry in Northern Michigan. I am recommending that everyone should take it easy until Labor Day is over and then maybe this heatwave will finally end. And, once this heatwave ends then you can go back to flipping burgers, or washing windows or building nuclear weapons to sell to unstable governments like in the U.S. or U.K. Whatever your line of work, it will be a lot easier to do it once the weather cools down.
Of course as hot as it's going to be next month I am personally glad last month is over. You see, I had to have a big horrible wart removed from my index finger. It was one of those big warts with the big long curly hair sticking out of it. It was really nasty to look at it. And, guess how I got it. I got it when I tried to help my friend Julia get rid of the awful little creature that flew up Julia's left nostril and refused to come out.
You see it happened when Julia and I were sipping bourbon while sitting out on lawn chairs behind our trailers (her trailer is actually right next to mine). The bourbon Julia had gotten for a Mother’s Day gift from her son Vern who works at a local distillery. I told her that the whiskey was too expensive to just share with me but she said her son got it cheap using his employee discount. Personally, Knowing Vern, he got the whiskey for free using a five finger discount but, she was sharing her bottle with me so who am I to point that out.
Well, we were both outside sipping on that expensive whiskey and enjoying the nice breeze when along comes this fairy and he flies directly up poor Julia's nose. Now, Julia was in shock but, just for a moment. Julia works for a divorce lawyer and she's seen and heard about everything so, it takes a lot to get and keep her rattled. So, after the initial shock had worn off Julia proceeded to try to blow the little fairy out of her nose; even going to the extent of pressing one finger against her right nostril to block the air passage so that more pressure would be exerted in the left nostril to force the little fella out. Well, no matter how hard Julia tried blowing her nose the little critter just would not leave so, I went into my trailer and came back out with a pair of tweezers and proceeded to grab the little fairy by the seat of his leotards and I easily yanked him out of poor Julia's nose.
Of course the fairy was really mad about what I had done and he started buzzing all around me then suddenly he reached in his leotards into I guess what was a pocket, and pulled out a little hand full of fairy dust and sprinkled it on my hand. Well, no sooner had he done that and a large wart with big hair in it emerged from my skin. The fairy then stuck out his tongue and sped off to harass some other people no doubt.
Julia and I never did figure out why the fairy went up her nose. Most fairies are little psychopaths and there is often neither rhyme nor reason to anything they do. Every time you come across one they are nothing but trouble and that's why I'm going to get myself one of those fairy swatters the next time I go to the dollar store. I'm also going to stop knocking down spider webs I come across because spiders are usually pretty effective at keeping the fairy population under control.
