The Opener

This is where it starts. This day marks the abrupt shift between summer and fall. Not so much with the weather because it’ll be hot as a kiln for at least another month. But this is when the dogs get jicky and you’ve got a new license and there’s football on TV and it’s okay if the kids skip school because it just started and people gather and birds fly and you get to wear boots and fish are temporarily forgotten.

It’s a montage of everything fine; and if there’s a wedding or a sales meeting or jury duty?

You skip it.
