In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “In the Summertime.”
In this prompt I am supposed to write about highlights of my summer so far. Instead Ii want to tell you a sad joke.
There are two kinds of winter in Latvia. The Green one is OK, and the white one is a bit colder.
And by the green winter is meant summer. Because sometimes temperature in summer solstice and in Christmas differs by 4 degrees. And this year I have experienced about three days of summer so far.
Recently I was on a trip to Austrian Alps and spent a week there riding a bike. This definitely is worth mentioning, when talking about summer. Unfortunately, it was raining all the time there too.
So I would like to request for the real summer to come here already. I want to go swimming, read a book on a beach or have warm evening barbecue.
