We are moving to camp for the summer today. I will miss you. I will miss your sunny, water-splashed window and seeing the neatly-mowed backyard. It's been another great school year together. I've come to enjoy our dishwashing times together, as long as I can play some big band music while I work. I'll pop in some Saturdays throughout the summer just to grab the mail, and you'll smell funny but familiar to me. Like you've been baking in the sun; no air conditioning turned on and no one to clean you or make a mess. You'll just be stale and empty, and hopefully ant-free. But when I get back it will all be worth it. I always come back from camp with renewed eagerness to use you! I'll bring groceries and flowers.
Your devoted proprietress
We don't have to say goodbye for the summer. Yay!
See you at camp!
