Random Thoughts Thursday: Holiday-y Thoughts

They’re Random! They’re Thoughts! It’s Thursday!

Where I won’t be this weekend:

  • Any beach anywhere in ‘Merica.
  • A park with picnic areas.
  • Any highway on Friday or Monday; Saturday and Sunday might be OK.
  • Any sports arena.
  • A movie theater after 4 p.m.
  • Any shopping center.
  • Any place the throngs of humanity are expected to be because they’re off, buying sheets, barbecuing hot dogs and hamburgers, and sunning themselves.

Where I will be:

  • Anywhere other than the aforementioned places as long as there’s air conditioning.
  • At least part of the time, behind my laptop at the usually-packed Starbucks I can never get in on a normal weekend, but should be empty because everybody’s everywhere but there.
  • In a state of longing when no mail arrives on Monday.
  • Inside one of four books I want to read, hopefully by the end of the weekend.
  • And in a state of gratitude and remembrance on Memorial Day because that’s what it’s really all about.
