aggieIt is HOT!  There is no getting around it.  It isn’t warm with a high humidity.  It isn’t a mild summer because we have only had 6 days of 100 degree weather. Nope. Negative. Nay.  It is hot!  But I guess it should be, it is the first of August.  Know what I’ve realized?  I’m sure you do.  As the temperature outside begins to dry up the grass and cracks in the soil begin to appear, something to the human brain occurs.  Now the top medical schools in the nation have not asked me to share with them my findings but I’m sure word is getting out.  And though I do not hold a medical degree or a doctorate of physiology, believe me, I’m qualified.  I’m qualified because my findings are based upon solid sound stupidity of the human species.  It is the day in and day out experiences I am surrounded with that has helped me to my findings.  See, what happens is as the temperatures outside rise, there is the reaction of the human brain that worsens in the summer.  I call this the Summer Signs of Stupidity.

“3S” as I like to call it, is the remarkable ability the rising temperatures outside have on the human brain and its inability to be calm, rational, clear thinking, polite, decent and nice.  I am sure you have all seen it.  Now, not everyone suffers from this abnormality but unfortunately, some do.  How else would one explain the craziness that we’ve witness thus far into the summer of 2015.  Yes, there has been tragedy this summer but I’m not just referring to the more unimaginable things as such.  There are too many to list out but I am sure you could share your example or two or three.  Shoot just the other day, a man ran out of gas in front of the store, came in and bought a gas can, had a customer take him to get gas, got gas, had the same customer bring him back to his car, filled his car up with gas, walked back in the store and wanted to return his gas can.  When I inquired why, his response was the spout dripped and he was not satisfied.  Looking shocked and surprised, I was speechless.  Before I could utter a word, “What? Does this store not take returns?”  Explain that!  I can, 3S!

NOW HEAR THIS!!! Before you post your example of your 3S patient stories on our Facebook page or stand in line to tell me about them at the store, or email me with them or even text me your example, don’t.  Not because I don’t want to laugh with you or shake our heads together in utter bewilderment, it is because I want you to do something different. Rather than relish in the ridiculous and let the heat fry our functionality, let’s all band together and enjoy the summer a little bit more.

Yes, it is hot out there but let’s not get goofy, let’s grill.  Forget the stupidity, swim!!  Stop the picketing and enjoy a picnic!  As a child, we all recall the fun summer days.  Why is it that as we grow older we leave even all that behind?  I say we make a change.  In fact, Dr. Risinger prescribes one.  From here on out, I challenge each and every one of you to go out and enjoy the summer far greater than you have thus far.  Find something, pick something, call someone, do something fun!  Enjoy life!  Oh what good could come out of it!

So there you have it.  You now have learned of my clinical research and thesis on “Summer Signs of Stupidity”.  But, better yet, the cure!  3S is treatable and curable.  So go now!  Escape the 3S!

And as a way of helping, we are even going to give you a way to enjoy the summer more.  This year Eagle Hardware will host the 3rd Annual Wildlife Expo.  The expo will be September 10 at 6:30 and will sure to be an event worthy of your presence and time.  Pay attention as in the coming days more and more information will be provided.  And, as always, please RSVP for dinner!
