Reinman’s Top 5 Things of Summer

August 6, 2011


5. The Sun

Nothing says “summertime” like Earth’s Yellow Sun. I mean it — nothing. That’s because the Sun’s special way of saying “summertime” is to constantly release 1.366 kW/m² of electromagnetic radiation — a good portion of which gave me a pretty bad sunburn a month or so ago.

As Shakespeare once said, “Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines / Like that one day when I forgot to put on suntan lotion and I got a really bad burn on mine nose.”  I hear you, Bill.

So really, I don’t much care for the Sun at all. That’s why I stuck him at number five.

4. Grass

Ever notice how, like, there’s a lot of grass all over the place in the summer?

3. Bright Copper Kettles


2. The Beach

Twenty-something Richard travels to Thailand and finds himself in possession of a strange map. Rumours state that it leads to a solitary beach paradise, a tropical bliss — excited and intrigued, he sets out to find it. (2000). Director: Danny Boyle; Writers: John Hodge (screenplay), Alex Garland (novel); Stars: Leonardo DiCaprio, Daniel York, and Patcharawan Patarakijjanon.

1. Wiffle Ball

No, seriously. Wiffle Ball’s awesome.

  1. Since you like bright copper kettles, you may also be a fan of crisp apple streudels. If so, I salute you!

  2. Snowflakes that fall on my nose and…

    Oh, wait. That’s winter.

    • Let’s not forget doorbells . . . and schnitzel with noodles! Who wouldn’t love those things, especially in summer?!

  3. I hate doorbells. They wake the Baby, rile up the Dog, and announce the arrival of visitors.
