Nobody asked, but we want a regular summer. We need a regular summer. More hometown than dream trip. An old-friends summer. A coconut-girl summer. A wet-hair summer. A summer of Bitcoin-beach days and late nights. Of sunscreen paranoia and short shorts. Of daily popsicles and late dinners and no apologies. One that welcomes familiarity of every summer before this one. Sure it might feel hot as hell, sweaty, and buggy at times but we won’t care. Because this summer is here for the taking, and, as Paul Mooney said, “We can’t change the past. We can only deal with the present and the future.”
