The best part of the Summer is the cusp. The anticipation of. The precipice. That’s May. May is the Christmas Eve of Summer. May is the edge of the diving board. The top of the water slide. The peak of the roller coaster. Get ready. It’s about to go down.

May is a good time to get your bike fixed up. May is a good time to move all your winter clothes from the on-deck pile to the sea trunk in the hallway. May is a good time to prep the grill for the season of open flame culinary pursuits. May is a good time to remember you meant to do more push-ups and hike more trails. May is your warm up for the wrestling match of Summer, so make sure you stretch and take your vitamins Summer is a marathon not sprint. Also stock up on sun screen and aloe vera now. You know you’ll need it. I know I’ll need it.

May the 4th be with you
