August has always been a questionable month on my calendar. First off, it is named for Augustus Caesar. Like the month, being a Caesar had its significant ups and downs. For example, the month of August is when homegrown tomatoes are so good that BLTs become a dream-like experience, but also when sweating becomes a televised sport. In the same manner, being a Caesar is all good news until someone stabs you.
August is also not September, which is lovely and cool and the beginning of fall. This August, Phoenix has apparently had 240 days of temperatures above 100 degrees. Definitely not September.
Such is life. I guess I will just have to sit back, eat BLTs and wait for a month more to my liking.
