Quarantine: Summer Brain

Oh Hello there. Remember me? In case you haven't heard, I have a severe case of summer brain. Not to be mistaken with a brain on drugs, nor brain dead -- but pretty damn close. Turns out, it's a little bit contagious and the whole family is struggling to get back on its feet. You may recognize the symptoms.

Most cases are characterized by an abnormally pink sunburn on the nose and cheeks.

... then you get a mysterious ring of chocolate ice cream on your lips and chin...

often accompanied by new short haircuts

and occasionally associated with both a beach towel and swimming ribbon.

In rare cases early symptoms usher in rare animal sightings in the front and back yard.

These sightings may lead to excessive documenting of garden specimens.

If you’re considering treatment for summer brain, I suggest discussing this with your lifeguard, playmates, neighbors, or even your doctor as they may interact with productivity, efficiency, and motivation.

An owl in your own backyard? I've only see them in a zoo or a book! how do you rate?

Love it! I have severe summer brain as well. How cool that you caught the owl in your yard! We hear an owl in our neighborhood but only at night.
