Nice things about May: Fresh strawberries from the farmer's market. Mmm, strawberries. I got Woodchuck pear cider, too, so I can sit out on the patio drinking it. Also, lots of time to read and write and do whatever.
Not-so-nice things about May: It's so hot that the glue on the rear-view mirror melted and fell off. (This happens regularly in the summer around here, and I hate it -- it's such a pain to reattach.) When my parents came down for graduation, they expressed the opinion that the Old Brown Ford was now in its final stages of disintegration, and while I'm not sure that's true (it runs better than it looks), they are probably right that I can't take it with me when I move halfway across the country. Sigh.
