To the Residents of Los Angeles County

It is with great personal disappointment that I must recognize my contribution to your discomfort this week. Tempting fate, I casually remarked on Monday at what a pleasant summer this had been. For the first time in five years I didn’t have to swealter through a triple-digit heat wave.

I’m sorry that the rest of you have had to suffer because I so recklessly made a summary of the summer before the summer was over. I pray that none of your homes are burned in the multiple fires raging in our county, that you find a way to breathe clean air and I hope you all have cool places wherein you can ride out this swealtering heat.

Having learned my lesson about speaking too quickly, I hang my head in shame. I am the jinx and I apologize.

Sincerely yours,
Zen Mama

    Hee hee hee! Very well written! I was just thinking the same thing about here. It hasn’t been that bad of a summer. Then I saw the weather report last night and it’s supposed to be hot and dry for who knows how long!
