Fear not; November remembers you.
This is that funny time of year — funny-melancholy, not funny-haha, although haha helps — when we’re betwixt and between different kinds of goodbyes. Summer friends like Mr. Tastee and all the superheroes have retreated to winter storage; but summer horseflies and amply-sized men in Speedos have departed, too. We’re torn between swinging from the last strains of “Summer Breeze” and jumping head-first into “November Rain,” even though the latter is one of the worst songs that was ever written, and let’s not even talk about the music video. But I digress.
And cats are relentless in their push towards the future, and things happen no matter what sorts of things are happening inside our strange selves, so let’s go, shall we?
