Scenes from Sunday: Dog Day

August 5th, 2012

Oh, Arkansas, I did not love you very much today. After a month of  living practically outdoors, it has been a rude shock to come home to heat indices upwards of 110 degrees, and be cooped up day after day. How hot is it? So hot, the dogs didn’t even mind getting baths.

By mid-afternoon I was wondering if I’d made a terrible mistake in coming back. But then the sun started to go down, and the evening air dropped into the double digits, and we were actually able to go for a walk across the river. Some of us even thought it was fit for a trot.

Then you turned on your Southern charm, you rascal.

And it worked.

I guess, deep down, I still love you.

But don’t push it.
