Summer's here and the time is right for… 10 FMLs about Summer!
1 - Are you ready-slash-excited about your vacation?
2 - Do you have the money to actually go anywhere?
3 - Escapism via vacations, the best way to free way your mind
Today, I found out that the small town I moved to to escape the crowds is actually a popular tourist spot in the summer. The majority are unbathed. I work in retail at the only convenience store, and the temperature has hit triple digits. FML
4 - Staycations are the "in thing", just hang out with the neighbors
Today, my neighborhood had its annual summer barbecue, and I ended up showing a little boy who lives down the street how to hit a baseball. When I gave him back his bat so he could try for himself, he swung it into my shin and yelled, "Tag! You're it!" FML
5 - Sea, sex…
6 - … for other people
7 - Tanning beds are evil
Today, I used a tanning bed for the first time ever, in an attempt to get a base tan for the summer. No one bothered to warn me that you shouldn't go the full ten minutes your first time. Now my skin is as red as my hair. FML
8 - If you wanted tact, you should've called a tactician
9 - Not everyone is going to Cancun
Today, my dad informed me that I will be staying in the bug-infested shed for the summer when I come to visit, due to his girlfriend's sewing workspace completely taking over the only room I've ever had at his house. FML
10 - Spend all Summer doing something constructive and reap the rewards
Today, I finally worked up the courage to play my friends the demo CD that I've spent all summer recording. I didn't tell them it was me. Not even 10 seconds into the first song, my best friend asked me to turn it off because it sucked. FML
We'd actually like to hear the demo CD in question, send it in! In any case, we hope you are enjoying your summer, whether you're on vacation or not. We never get vacations, FML is open 24/7. Keep on sending us your stories about shitty vacations, plans that go wrong and cruise ships that hit icebergs. We're waiting.
