Our town's greasy spoon drive-in diner has reopened for yet another season! The adventurous summer folk sit outside on picnic benches, swatting mosquitoes and chasing after blowing napkins, while the locals sit in their cars and snicker to one another, "Only a damned fool would sit outside on a day like this."

I've just come from my inaugural feast and can already feel my arteries harden. It's been the same order since I was a wee kid: haddock burger, French fries, and a can of Lipton's iced tea.


Aaaah, the lure of another season!!
