Summer is officially over

 I was reading this article about teenage crushes finding each other again after 40 years and thought: how gullible can you be? If he hasn't tried to contact her in 40 years she is his last choice, the one he left because he thought he could get better and kept on searching for 40 years. That's  how little she meant to him, or the other way around.  She believes the lies because they are comforting: " I could never get you out of my mind. I always thought of you as the one who got away. In my heart it was always you and me.". Standard protocol for when you want to get back together with someone. Apparently it works for some. I'm not saying this out of bitterness, it was more an epiphany. In case someone tries; I'm not susceptible.  I don't know what type of lies I could believe, perhaps:
- I never got your name.
Or:
- My spaceship was stranded in another galaxy.
Or:
- Someone threatened to wipe out the entire planet if I contacted you.
Or:
- I hit my head and suffered from total amnesia until yesterday when I miraculously remembered you.
Or:
- I've been waiting in the shadows, enjoying your suffering and thirst for love until you were exhausted and weak enough to approach.
Or:
- I have planned out this life meticulously and you don't really enter the picture until this point.
Or:
- I have been working hard to be able to sponsor your luxurious lifestyle.
Or:
- I was weak and kept on fainting at the mere thought of you.

After a while they start to sound realistic. Summer will come back. Seasons are good that way, reliable. They used to be.

Good night and cherish the last day of August. Winter is coming.
