Summer always starts with such promise. The air echoes with the clinking of ice cubes in highball glasses; your eyes fill with swimming pools. Then August rolls around. The grass turns brown, the air conditioning starts to wheeze from exertion, and the Back to School displays at the drugstore fill even long-ago graduates with gloom.
You begin to long for sleeves.
