Calendar Denial

It's that time of year. The fall is just about here. Don't get me wrong. I love teaching. I love my students (especially the ones who read this blog). But I hate giving up summer. In fact, at this point I'm simply retreating into denial. If only we think enough summer thoughts, and refuse to give aid and comfort to autumn by listening to the blame summer first crowd, the season will stay all year long. The planetary theory of the seasons is only a theory.

Ice cream

Hard or soft?

(We asked this last year, but it's worth revisiting.)

Jimmies or sprinkles?

Chocolate or rainbow?

Corn on the cob

Typewriter or rounder?

Salt, butter, both, or neither?
